According to him, increasing security services at the local level will strengthen and advance the country’s fight against insecurity.

 

 

 

“It is very important because, considering the terrorist threat that is facing this country, security within the country must be enhanced and improved. So if you have people bringing security or the police service to the doorstep of the people, it’s an important milestone that we have to all celebrate,” he said.

Mr. Osei-Mensah calls for cooperation between police personnel and community leaders to help combat crime.

“The community should provide the needed information that will enable the police work effectively and we plead with the police that they should also cooperate with the community and I’m sure if they do that it will be the benefit of all of us,” he urged.

The regional minister also notes that, even if there are still security-related issues in the region, things have changed dramatically since 2017, which has reduced the frequency of highway robberies and other similar crimes.2

According to Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere, the Member of Parliament for the Atwima Nwabiagya South Constituency, the area had a perilous security condition, necessitating the assembly’s prompt response to the public’s demands by building the police station.

“The security situation was so bad and that informed the construction of this very building. It was so bad that the lawlessness was getting out of hand, so I think that to ensure security and to ensure peace and tranquility within the community, it’s important that we get this structure so that at the end of the day, there will be that shared responsibility between the police and the citizenry,” he stated.

The chief urges officers to deal with anyone, even any chiefs who may show up asking for the release of suspects after they have been arrested.

 

The Municipal  Chief Executive for the area, Hon. Amoah Awuku said this newly built Police Station  will help bring development to the people and help promote peace and stability by a way of reducing the police and citizen ratio and to combat the increase in crime in the society.
