POLICE INTERVENTION PREVENTS DESTRUCTION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY IN HIGH SCHOOLS

Over the years, some final year students in Senior High Schools have marked the completion of their final examinations with the destruction of school properties and other acts of vandalism.

In pursuit of our Proactive Prevention Policing Strategy, the Police initiated engagements with final year students and school authorities at most of the High Schools in the country.

Our interactions focused on the need for students to uphold the law and the rules and regulations of their schools. We also highlighted the criminal implications of such behavior and the dire consequence that offenders could face and the implications on their future.

We are delighted this intervention yielded the expected outcome as most final year students desisted from causing harm or destroying school properties.

There is an isolated case where an inferno razed down a dormitory at Nyinahin Senior High School on 9th October, 2021, at the Atwima Mponua District of the Ashanti Region.

Preliminary investigations have established that on the day of the destruction, most final year students had checked out of campus and the remaining students were at rosary prayers. Further investigations are being undertaken to determine the actual cause of the inferno.

The Police Administration wishes to express profound gratitude to headteachers, teachers and other school authorities.

We commend all students for their good and positive behaviour after their final exam. We also acknowledge all Police personnel across the country who took part in the exercise.

We entreat all school authorities, parents, guardians and the general public to continue engaging these young ones on their civic responsibilities including their role in maintaining law and order.

When we work together, we can bring a permanent end to this rather worrying phenomenon and guarantee a safe learning environment for students.
