A refurbished male cell for the Nsawam District Police Command in the Eastern Region was inaugurated last Friday.
The GH¢45,000 project which was funded by Voltic Ghana Limited, includes tiling and installation of water closets, showers and a water storage tank.
The Plant Manager of Voltic, Mr. Eugene Djan-Sampson, said the gesture was part of the corporate social responsibility of the company.
He said the company received a request from the Police Command for assistance to refurbish the cell, adding that a critical look at the poor living condition in the cell touched the company to embark on the project.
“We believe the police also deserve to have the best of facilities to ensure safety and security of Ghanaians,” he added.
Mr. Djan-Sampson commended the poIice for protecting lives and property even at the peril of their lives, and assured the Command of continuous support from the company.
The District Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Michael Dandy Zah, commended the company for the kind gesture and assured that it would be maintained to expand its lifespan.
He called on other organisations, churches and philanthropists to support the police to achieve its goals.
“The government alone cannot do it, we need spirited individuals and organisations to support us in our mandate,” he said.
