The Brong-Ahafo Regional Police Command has advised residents to be mindful of their personal security to contribute to the effort of the Police in clamping down on the activities of criminals in their respective communities.

    Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Sunyani, Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong, the Regional Police Public Relations Officer said the Police had designed a strategy “Operation Oil Spot Strategy” in response to several reports of criminal activities in some communities in the Sunyani Municipality, the Sunyani West District and the region in general.

    He mentioned Fiapre, the Catholic University, Asiakwaa, Kuotokrom, Airport, Yawhima and Bakoniaba as some areas that were experiencing robbery almost every day.

     Chief Inspector Oppong said the Command by that strategy had positioned itself to crack down the activities of criminals and therefore cautioned miscreants and illegal drug dealers to desist from their nefarious activities to avoid facing the wrath of the Police.

     He expressed concern about some juveniles who were involved in criminal activities and appealed to parents to advise their children “who are well-known criminals” to refrain from such acts because they would be dealt with by the law if they were caught.

    Chief Inspector  Oppong  entreated  the general public to  put security codes on their phones and  also some  identification marks on their machines  for easy identification and collection in case of  stealing.

   He asked the public to take closer look at people they come across in their communities, especially strangers to be able to give vivid description to the Police in any event of criminality.

   Chief Inspector Oppong called for the revival of defunct neighbourhood watchdog committees (NWCs) and formation of new ones in areas without exiting ones to complement the efforts of the Police in protecting lives and properties.
