The Security Expert Guard Agency of Liberia (SEGAL) is said to be gaining momentum in its activities by contributing immensely to the Poverty Reduction Strategy through employment.
At the program marking the graduation ceremony of SEGAL Security Training Class Six on January 25th in Yekapa, Nimba County, Nimba Supt. Christiana Dagadu praised the security firm for being so committed to its call of duty.
She said, SEGAL services have created jobs for many Liberians as well as citizens of Nimba County thus reducing the unemployment rate in the country.
“SEGAL is so honest to the people of Nimba and they are always committed to what they says and through their commitment to peace in Nimba,” she said.
At the program where the Supt. spoke, SEGAL certificated over 172 men and women after a month-long security training conducted by the Liberia National Police under the topic “Vital Installation Training Course”.
At least 35 percent of the trainees were females.
SEGAL is one of the leading security guard services in Liberia with employees reaching 2000.
SEGAL provides protection for ArcelorMittal facilities in their concessional area in Nimba where over 600 of their personals are assigned.
The orator of the occasion, Liberia National Police Assistant Commissioner Coolo Moses Tamba Sepoh said a private security is an auxiliary to the national security and also charge with the responsibility to protect lives and properties.
Speaking on “Discipline A Milestone to the Successful Ending in Your Lives,” he urged graduates to be committed to their calling and show integrity.
He further urged the SEGAL family to continually conduct in – service training for their officers in order to build their capacities.
He said this would be a way of giving them retentive mind and top their strength rather than their weaknesses.
SEGAL General Manager Momo Cyrus also encouraged the newly trained officers to be committed so as to reach what he termed “key performance indicator.” He added that indicator will enable his firm get or renew contract upon the expiration of existing contract with ArcelorMittal by the end of this year.
Lionel Keller, SEGAL Board Chairman encouraged the officers to further their education while serving as security, “We don’t want you to be security all throughout your lives, go to school.”
