The Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commis-sioner of Police (DCOP) Christian Tetteh Yohuno, has commended the Kaneshie Divi-sional Command for working assiduously to reduce the crime rate in the area.
The continuous day and night patrols by personnel of the division had contributed to reduced crime, he said last Thursday at the end-of-year West African Security Services Association (WASSA) get-together in Accra.
It was attended by both senior and junior officers and other stakeholders.
The guests were entertained to soothing music by the Police Band.
DCOP Yohuno urged police personnel to be professional in the discharge of their duties.
The Kaneshie Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Ernest K. Owusu, said cases recorded last year, included land litigations, chieftaincy issues, a few robberies and road accidents.
He called for the maximum support and co-operation of the public and the communities to address chieftaincy issues, land litigations, robberies and other crimes.
Mr. Mohammed Agbeve, of the Agbeve Herbal Medicine Ltd., who was among the guests, said the work of the police was daunting, noting that “they protect lives and property at the peril of their lives”.
Mr. Agbeve assured the police of his continuous support to enhance their operations.
