MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberia Immigration Service (LIS), and the Community Watch Forum of Liberia have entered into a partnership deal to ensure peaceful elections are held in October this year.
LIS Director for Operations, Col. Danny Sartee, pledged his entity’s collaboration with Community Watch Forum to boost border surveillance across the country.

He lauded the Community Watch Forum for the partnership deal, stressing the safety of the nation and its people remains paramount above personal interest.
Col. Sartee spoke on Sunday, July 2, 2023, at the unveiling of the Operational Plan by the Community Watch Forum of Liberia ahead of the October elections.

He boasted of his organization’s collaboration with the National Security in maintaining peace and security throughout the country, since its establishment.
Mr. Kaffey warned against vices that tend to instigate violence during and after the elections.
