Veep Tasks Police To Develop Strategies In Crime Detection 3/4/2012

Ghana’s Vice President, Mr John Dramani Mahama yesterday called on the Ghana Police Service to develop strategies in crime detection to reduce the rising rate of criminal activities.

He also called for effective management of police exhibits to make them authentic to prosecute people engaged in all kinds of criminal activities. Mr Mahama made the call when he joined the Police in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region to celebrate the annual West African Soldiers Social Activity (WASSA).

WASSA is a programme to refresh members of the service and to appraise their performance during the past year.

Mr Mahama, who is Chairman of the Police Council, said government will continue to provide the service with equipment and logistics apart from improving their salaries and offering additional incentives to the personnel.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Robert Ayalingo, Brong Ahafo Regional Police Commander, commended other security agencies for cooperating with the police to combat crime.

He said the effective collaboration of the security agencies have led to the reduction of armed robbery and other organised criminal activities in the region.

The regional police commander said smuggling of goods to neighbouring countries has also reduced tremendously.

DCOP Ayalingo said more than five tonnes of Indian hemp were seized in police/military operations in 2011, while stealing and pick pocketing which were prevalent at the lorry parks and other public places have gone down.

He gave the assurance that the police will continue to partner colleagues in other security services to provide security to the public before, during and after this year’s general election.

DCOP Ayalingo entreated all political parties to avoid insults against their opponents during the electioneering to avoid clashes and confrontations.
