The Central Region Police Command, last year, dismissed three of its personnel for engaging in criminal activities or unprofessional conduct.

Four others also had their ranks reduced whiles, another four were severely reprimanded for indiscipline during the same period.

The Central Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Akuribah Yaagh, announced this at their 2016 West African Security Service Association (WASSA).

The occasion, which was used for stock taking and interactions, was attended by the members of the various divisions of the Police Service such as the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit, the Motor Transport and Traffic Department, Communication and Finance.

DCOP Yaagh commended the officers for their hard work and asked them to conduct themselves professionally and to maintain decorum, especially during the general election.

He said in this election year, they should avail themselves of the necessary training, particularly, in crowd control, explaining, “You have to be robust but be within the law when dealing with violent crowd during political rallies and gatherings’’.

He said those who would be selected to serve as bodyguards or aids to political party presidential candidates should act professionally and warned that personnel who would engage in unnecessary political arguments would be made to face the law. 

The Regional Commander urged them to be patriotic and consider Ghana first in all their activities and also live up to the task to ensure peaceful and violence-free elections. 

He, however, stated that the responsibility of maintaining law and order did not rest with the Police alone because citizens were equally enjoined to assist the Police to achieve their goal.

The Regional police Commander called for the setting up of more neighbourhood watch committees, who would adequately and timorously report incidents to the Police and assist the Police to perform their night patrols.

Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, the Omanhen of Oguaa Traditional Area, who presided, commended the Police for helping to reduce the crime rate and also maintaining peace in the region.

He also encouraged them to sustain the Police visibility and accessibility patrol programme, which he said, had helped in crime detection and management. 

The personnel were treated to highlife music provided by the Central Regional Fire Service Band.
