Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Kofi Boakye, the Ashanti Regional Commander, has called for increased collaboration between operators in the hospitality industry and the police to help keep the nation safe.

Hotel and entertainment centre owners, he said, needed to actively involve the police in their activities to ensure adequate protection for everybody.

DCOP Boakye was speaking at a meeting held with hotel and nightclub operators in Kumasi.

This comes amid heightened anxiety caused by the recent terrorist attack on an upscale hotel and café in neighbouring Burkina Faso – the fear that such despicable act could be carried out in the country.

He asked that they strengthened their internal security arrangements to flag up any suspicious people who patronized their facilities.

The hotels, particularly, should properly check the identity of potential guests to prevent criminals from using their places as hideout.

He advised them to engage qualified people to man installed security cameras, adding that, things must be done in such a way that they do not open up their facilities to any miscreant.

DCOP Boakye said it was important for all to take responsibility and work together to prevent and fight crime.
