Abstract

The aim and objective of this research was to examine the impact of the Liberian Police force toward its citizens and how that impact developed over time. In addition, this project will explore the police training, police organization, police recruitment and crime control strategies. A questionnaire was developed by the researcher as a data collection method necessary to gather information regarding the attitudes of Liberian citizens toward the Liberian Police Force in terms of crime control strategies, recruitment, training, and police organization. ^ The questionnaire was passed out to a sample of Liberian population residing in Nashville and other locations in the United States. The data was analyzed through the use of several statistical procedures to determine the legitimacy of the hypothesis. After the data was analyzed, the results indicated that age and education were not significant predictors of attitudes toward police practices and procedures in Liberia. The researcher concluded that both eras of policing in Liberia were perceived being ineffectiveness. However, a significant difference was found between females and males, younger and older, in regards to perceptions of police practices by the Liberian Police Force during both eras. ^
