The Inspector General of police (IGP), Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, has expressed appreciation to the management of Katanka Automobile company for donating a Katanka Omama Double cabin 2.7 diesel engine pick-up to the police to enhance their operations.
The IGP described the donation as a gesture worth emulating by other corporate bodies, noting that it had come at a time when the Police Service, despite its logistical constraints, is opening up new offices or stations in order to provide effective policing in communities.
Mr. Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan disclosed that the police administration had created 28 divisional commands which had increased the number of districts to 68 and a total of 185 new stations.
He said that the newly opened offices, added to the existing ones, give a total of 77 divisional commands, 267 district police stations and 882 stations throughout the country.
Mr. Mohammed Alhassan was hopeful that the Kantanka Omama pick-up would stand the test of time, taking into account the fact that the police move through both rough and smooth terrains during their operations.
The Acting CEO of Katanka Automobile, Kwadwo Sarfo Jnr. said the donation of the vehicle was the beginning of a series of similar donations to be made to the security agencies as the company’s contribution towards augmenting their fleet of vehicles.
Mr. Kwadwo Sarfo Jnr. assured the police that the Katanga Omama pick-up is manufactured in Ghana and would undergo routine maintence after it had covered a distance of 30,000 km.
Mr. Kwadwo Sarfo in an interview with DAILY GUIDE, said the value of the vehicle would be determined by the close of the year after it had been launched
