Grand Bassa County District Three Representative Baron Brown has called on government to withdraw officers of the Police Support Unit assigned in the district.

Representative Brown said since the PSU officers took up assignment in the district, numerous complaints continue to be filed against them.

Representative Brown told Star Radio the citizens have complained of ill-treatment against them by the PSU officers.

Lawmaker Brown said the citizens also complained of the shooting in the leg of a motorcyclist in the FDA Junction area of the district.

Representative Brown said the PSU officers are in the constant habit of setting road blocks under the pretext of conducting inspection.

According to him, instead of conducting inspection they harass and intimidate the citizens and extort money from them.

Representative Brown said the action by the PSU officers in the district does not represent the peace and democracy government is striving to maintain.
