The Ministry of Interior is concerned about the surge in criminal activities affecting lives of innocent Gambians and non-Gambians residing in this country by unscrupulous elements in our society.
This surge is happening at an alarming rate and therefore a cause for concern for all residents in the Gambia.
The public is hereby informed, that the Government of The Gambia, through the Ministry of Interior, condemns all criminal activities in the strongest possible terms and urges all citizens and non- citizens to be law abiding, deter and desist from participating in any form of activity, which is against the laws of the country and threatens the peace and security of the country.
The Ministry of Interior would like to remind all Gambians that maintaining peace and security of the country is the responsibility of everyone and not just our men in uniform.
In this regard, this office solicits the support and cooperation of the public, by continuing to share information with the police in order to combat all forms of crimes.
While this office appreciates and commends the office of the IGP and other sister forces in combatting crime, it therefore urges all and sundry to collectively work as partners with the security institutions to maintain and strengthen peace and stability across the country.
Finally, the Ministry of Interior would like to remind everyone that the Gambia is a country with laws and anybody found wanting will be subjected to the full force of the law.
