Vision

The ONS aspires to achieve the provision of a transparent, apolitical, accountable and operationally effective structure; staffed by high calibre individuals of great integrity, safeguarding a free, independent and democratic Sierra Leone and the wellbeing of its people.

Message from the National Security Coordinator


Since the end of the civil war in 2002, the security landscape in Sierra Leone has evolved dramatically with considerable progress in structural reforms and service delivery. There has been a paradigm shift from state-centric to human security. This current security arrangement requires core security sector institutions and government Ministries, Departments and Agencies to work in tandem and complement one another in pursuance of our collective security and progress.

The Office of National Security (ONS) is positioned to play the critical role of coordinating these efforts as enshrined in the National Security & Central Intelligence Act (2002).

Overtime, the ONS has made deliberate efforts to promote the culture and practice of security across government, thereby linking security strategy to development objectives. Also, the ONS supports His Excellency, the President and Chairman of the National Security Council by offering the highest quality advice, and driving efforts to ensure decisions are implemented in a professional fashion.
