C/Regional Police gets memorial ground

The Central Regional Police Command has inaugurated a new memorial ground for the Ghana Police Service in the region.

The ground with a cenotaph, would offer an opportunity for the service to honour personnel who lose their lives in the course of duty.

Inaugurating the facility, the Central Regional Minister, Kwabena Duncan, commended the police for their dedicated service to the region.

He said that peace and security was prerequisite to development, adding that the contribution of the police in securing peace of the region had been enormous.

“The region continues to be the most peaceful region in this nation, thanks to the work of the police,” Mr Duncan stressed, and commended the police for demonstrating professionalism.

He said government was committed to promoting the welfare of the police.

Touching on whether police personnel would be migrated from the CAP 30 to the SSNIT pension scheme, the minister said cabinet had not taken any decision regarding the migration.

The Central Regional Police Commander, DCOP Paul Awini, commended the police personnel for the sacrifices they had made in safeguarding the security of the region.
