Ashaiman Regent inspects vehicles donated to Divisional Police Command

The Regent of Ashaiman, Nii Annang Adzor, has inspected pickup and motorbikes donated to the Ashaiman Divisional Police Command.

A year ago, the Regent donated a double-cabin Toyota Hilux pickup vehicle and four APSONIC motorbikes worth GH₵104,000.00 to the Police Command.

Speaking at the premises of the Command in Ashaiman on Wednesday, the Regent called for a collaborative agenda aimed at supporting the Police Service in whatever way possible.

According to him, the role played by Police officers in Ashaiman and, by extension, Ghana is par excellence. He opined that it is incumbent on citizens to support the Police in the fight against crime at all times.

The Regent indicated that the inspection was a step in the right direction, saying it will help find out some of the things the Police might need in the months ahead. He said that when donations are done, they should not end there, as a constant monitoring mechanism will aid in the longevity of the items donated.

The Regent also stated that the country is currently in difficult times and that the government cannot possibly meet all of the country’s developmental needs. He noted that the citizenry must assist in helping build a prosperous nation for all of us.

“We know that the government cannot do it all alone. It is, therefore, incumbent on us as citizens to help the government by augmenting their efforts to bring security to the doorsteps of the citizenry.

“We as citizens have it as our civil responsibility to contribute to the success stories of the Police Service by motivating them to serve us better,” he stated.

 Community engagement

Nii Adzor stressed the need for community engagement to educate people about the operations of the Police.

According to him, the public’s negative perception of the Service can be reversed if proper education on their role in the community is provided. This, he said, will promote friendliness between Police officers and civilians.

“I implore the Police Service as a matter of urgency to organize community engagement for the purposes of educating the public on the dos and don’ts of civilians and officers. That way, the public will feel free to engage the Police more when they sense criminal activity in their area,” he mentioned.

Nii Adzor thanked all the businessmen who contributed to the donation and appealed to Ghanaians to support the Ghana Police Service, especially the Ashaiman Division.

Assurance

On his part, the Ashaiman Police Commander, Chief Superintendent, Adu Kwadwo Baidu, further assured the people of Ashaiman of his commitment to maintaining peace and order in the municipality.

Appreciation

Chief Superintendent Adu thanked the Regent of Ashaiman, Nii Annang Adzor, for the gesture a year ago and for making efforts to inspect as a way of helping the Police in their fight against crime.

“I believe the gesture has been helpful in the fight against crime in this division. “We are thankful to the Regent, Nii Annang Adzor, and the businessmen, for thinking about the security needs of Ashaiman and donating to that effect a year ago,” he recalled.
