Bong County Service center (BCSC) with support from UNDP is expected to introduce a new Biometric system to citizens of the county, the coordinator has disclosed.
Addressing a team of reporters over the weekend, the services coordinator Mr. Jefferson Gbaryan said, the Biometrics system will be used to identify individuals through fingerprint mapping and facial recognition among others.
He called upon residents of the county especially those in the rural parts to take advantage of the Biometrics system that is expected to be in full ready at the county services center in Gbarnga.
The County Service Center is part of efforts by the Government of Liberia to take major documentary services closer to the people under its decentralization support program (LDSP) led by Ministry Internal Affairs.
According to him, a registrar is assigned at the Birth registration unit of the Ministry of Health; thus triggering the huge influx of parents to their children’s birth registrations from zero to 12 years since its introduction in the county.
He then extended appreciation to UNDP, the Government of Liberia, the European Union and other partners for helping to take services closer to the people of Liberia.
Under the decentralization policy, the county service center offers Marry Certificates, Driver’s license, birthday certificates for children between zero to twelve years, National Identification Cards among others.
