Apam Police Women Fight Truancy

Police women at Apam have decided to arrest any school girl found on the streets during school hours, as part of efforts to promote girl-child education in the area.

Inspector Salomey Nunoo of the Apam Police Station, said this at a sensitisation durbar of residents at Apam.

The durbar was part of activities held by the Gomoa West branch of the Police Ladies Association to mark the association’s 25th anniversary.

She stressed the need for parents to provide their children, especially the girls, with all their needs to avoid yielding to sexual advances by men in exchange for personal items.

“A very good education for girls can enhance their prospects of securing good employment to better their lives in future,” she stressed.

According to her, women were seriously lagging be-hind, and that a good girl-child education would enable them to compete with their male counterparts.

Inspector Nunoo advised mothers to cut unbeneficial expenses such as buying cloths for social events, and rather invest their resources in their children’s education, since that would be more beneficial.

As part of the celebration, the Police Ladies Association distributed school materials, including pens, flash cards, souvenirs, posters and brochures on violence against women, to the pupils of the Gomoa Ankamu District Assembly JHS.
