The new Western Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) COP Mr Felix Fosu-Agyeman, has appealed to journalists to educate the public on security.
He said people needed to know more about personal security, to be able to avoid miscreants and criminals, particularly armed robbers.
DCOP Fosu-Agyeman was speaking to journalists to whip up their interest to educate the public on security matters in Sekondi.
He called on Ghanaians to be “observant, alert and vigilant about their personal security, to be able to detect the presence of strange and suspicious characters and report them to the police before any attack.”
He urged community members to volunteer information to the police about suspicious people to the police, stressing “all people must be vigilant and alert to detect the presence of suspicious characters”.
The Western Regional Commander urged parents not to allow their children to interact with strangers or receive gifts from them, because they (strangers) could take advantage of the ignorance of children and cause harm to them.
