To offer optimum protection to citizens in the region, the Central Regional Police Command has appealed to the media for information on criminal activity.
The request was made by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Kwadwo Antwi Tabi, Regional Police Commander, who noticed that drivers were aggressively overtaking on the Accra-Cape Coast-Takoradi expressway.
Senior Police officers will be dispatched to oversee subordinate officers to ensure that the proper thing was done, according to DCOP Tabi, to ensure professional behavior of the police while on the road.
He stated that the Police would continue to educate and remind drivers and road users of their obligations in partnership with the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) and other road safety authorities.
DCOP Tabi also voiced concern over the rising number of chieftaincy disputes in the region, urging aggrieved parties to settle their issues through constitutionally recognized institutions like the Regional and National Houses of Chiefs.
He was confident that having police officers on the road would serve as a warning to drivers and guarantee that they obeyed all traffic laws.
To reduce the rate of crime in the communities, DCOP Tabi stated that the command will enhance foot patrols and make the police more visible in the neighborhoods, emphasizing that criminals would find it more difficult to operate.
Following the deconstruction of the Budumburam camp, he added, the Regional Police Command was on high alert and attentive, knowing that some of the offenders would flee to other parts of the country.
DCOP Tabi assured residents of maximum Police protection, adding that with proper monitoring and supervision, the spate of road accidents and crime in the region would soon reduce.
He, therefore, appealed to the public to volunteer information to the Police when a crime was committed to helping in investigations.
DCOP Tabi said it was the civil responsibility of every citizen to ensure security in their communities.
