The Police Administration has established 185 new police stations across the country, Mr Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, the Inspector General of Police, has revealed.

He said additional 28 police divisions and 68 districts had been created to boost the operations of the service.

“This brings the total number of police stations nationwide to 882,” he said.

Mr. Alhassan said this in Accra on Wednesday, when the Kantanka Automobile Limited donated one of its vehicles with brand name “Kantanka Omama” to the Police Administration to enhance its operations.

The vehicles were assembled in Ghana and have special features like voice control system unit.

Mr Alhassan commended the company for the kind gesture and assured that the vehicle would be used for the intended purpose.

He said it would go a long way to augment the fleet of vehicles used by the police for operational duties.

The Inspector General of Police called on other organisations to emulate the company’s gesture, adding that “government alone cannot do everything in combating crime in the country.”

The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Kwadwo Sarfo Jr, who presented the vehicle on behalf of the company, commended the police for their dedication to duty even at the peril of their lives.

He said there was the need to support the police in combating crimes in the country for people to go about their duties freely without fear or panic.

Mr Sarfo said the vehicle would soon be launched for other security agencies to benefit.
