A non-governmental organization, CLEEN Foundation, in collaboration with the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI), has paid a day's visit to 10 police stations in the Adenta area.

Speaking to GNA the team leader, Mr Charles Asare, said they were there to look at the facilities at the police stations.

The Commander of the Adenta District Police Headquarters,

Mr. Stephen Ahiatafu, conducted the visitors round the Adenta Police Station. Other members were Mrs. Abigail Agyeman and Mr Benjamim Kingham Okyere.

They visited the Charge Office, Station Officer's office, armoury, male and female cells, the toilets and bathrooms.

The CLEEN officials also examined the conditions of the mattresses and blankets in the cells.

Mr Ahiatafu said monthly and quarterly crime reports were often dispatched to the Divisional Headquarters in Madina, which in turn sent them to the Police Headquarters for further documentation.

They noted that domestic violence cases were reported to the Madina Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service for investigations.

Mr Ahiatafu explained that the Adenta Police Headquarters supervised the Adenta MTTU Accident Unit, Ayi Mensah Police Station, Adenta Police, Maajor Police, Frafraha Police and Lake Side Police stations.

At the CID office when the CLEEN officials asked how juvenile offenders were treated they were told that they were not put in cells.

Mr Ahiatafu said the Police Station had only one vehicle that carried out the daily requests of the Station.

The numerical strength of the Police is 85 and they face serious problems of accommodation with the majority of policemen and women living outside the police station.
