THE DECHEMUOSO/TECHIMAN Police, near Kumasi, have taken delivery of a Nissan vehicle and two motorbikes to help in their patrol duties.
The chiefs and people of the area presented the car, motorbikes, a generator and a desktop computer with a printer to the police at a colourful ceremony.
The Dechemuoso/Techiman Police Station was opened about three weeks ago by DCOP Kofi Boakye, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander.
Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II, the Atwimahene and his people decided to resource the police to battle crime, hence the presentation.
The presentation ceremony, held on Tuesday, was attended by Ashanti Regional Minister, Samuel Sarpong and his deputy, Samuel Yaw Adusei.
Addressing the gathering, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II said development could not take place without the security of the people being ensured first.
He said the community decided to dig deep into their pockets to provide the items for the police to enable them to deal adequately with crime.
The Atwimahene urged the public to feed the police with information about criminals that lived among them, so that they could be arrested.
DCOP Kofi Boakye showered praises on the Atwimahene over his passion to resource the police to work, urging other chiefs to learn from him.
He stated that the government and the police administration alone could not construct police stations so the people must help.
DCOP Boakye stated that the police were more determined to deal with crime so he called for the help of the public, to enable the police to succeed.
He announced that three suspects in connection with a robbery case at Hilltop which resulted in the death of a security man have been arrested and arraigned before court.
The Ashanti Regional Minister, Samuel Sarpong, appealed passionately to the public to support the police in diverse ways in order to help them battle crime effectively.
He said the government alone could not resource the police to provide protection for the masses, urging the public to always extend a helping hand to the police.
