Buchanan, Grand Bassa Liberia: – ArcelorMittal-Liberia (AML) has donated to the Liberia National Police Grand Bassa County Detachment a brand-new vehicle to perform essential duties.

Officials of AML who early Tuesday, February 14, 2023, drove the vehicle to the headquarters of the Liberia National Police in Buchanan said, the donation was made from the company’s Phase-II Expansion Project.

The four door Toyota Hilux keys were turned over to Grand Bassa County Superintendent Janjay Baikpeh in the presence of the county attorney, officials, and police authorities.

Superintendent Baikpeh thanked ArcelorMittal-Liberia for the “meaningful” donation and said the county was happy with the bold step taken by the global steel giant to help the security sector.

The Grand Bassa Police Detachment has for nearly two years operated without any official vehicle which is essentially a workstation for patrol officers who spend nearly an entire shift offsite.

With the donation of the vehicle from the AML Phase-II Expansion Project, the LNP Grand Bassa Detachment can now improve patrols, and quickly reach incident scenes, to conduct investigation and safeguard law enforcement.

The vehicle will also be helpful in establishing police presence and providing visible crime deterrence in various parts of Grand Bassa County.

The donation of the vehicle further solidifies the long-standing partnership between the Government and people of Liberia and one of the largest mining firms in the world (ArcelorMittal).

It also shines light on the potential of community development benefits, job creation and wider economic advantages to be accrued when AML’s Expansion is fully operationalized.

ArcelorMittal-Liberia’s Phase-II Expansion Project encompasses additional investment in processing, rail, and port facilities.

The project promises to be one of the largest mining operations in West Africa with a capital investment of over a Billion United States Dollars.

Nearly 3,000 jobs are being created now during the construction phase of the Phase-II Expansion Project alone, with Liberians filling most of these roles.
