THE POLICE Administration has developed new tactics of marching the speed of armed robbers with the use of motorbikes, Deputy Accra Regional Police Commander, ACP Timothy Bonga Yoosa, has disclosed.
He pointed out that ‘most armed robbers have resorted to the use of motorbikes for their criminal activities. To take the fight to them and to enable the police to reduce robbery in the country to the barest minimum, therefore, we will need motorbikes that can equal the pace of the motorbikes the criminals use in their robbery.’
ACP Yoosa took the opportunity to appeal to corporate bodies and individuals to support the police with motorbikes to enable the police to march the speed of armed robbers.
He made the appeal at Baatsona in Tema at the commissioning of a new district police headquarters for the area.
ACP Yoosa further stated that in a bid to get policing closer to the people, the Police Administration has added seven new divisional headquarters.
According to him, with the addition of the new divisions, the number has increased to 14, with the Baatsona Divisional cum District Police Headquarters being the latest addition.
ACP Yoosa reminded personnel to be stationed at the new police headquarters to work assiduously and continue to improve on their rapport with the residents in their bid to fight crime.
Isaac Ashai Odamtten, TMA Chief Executive, said the establishment of the Baatsona Divisional/District Police Headquarters is a reflection of the importance government attaches to law and order.
He guaranteed the residents of more responsive, competent, better and professional policing.
Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, Board Chairman for the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), donated a set of computers to the Baatsona Divisional/District Police Station to enhance their operations.
The half-storey divisional headquarters infrastructure was funded by the Local Government and Rural Development, with support from the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) who sourced funds for the completion of the structure at a cost of GH¢230,521.
