The Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) has completed and handed over an ultra-modern District Police Station for Tema Manhean after demolishing the old dilapidated one in 2019.
The new building situated near the Kplejoostoshishi replaces the old one built in the 1960s and demolished upon the advice of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) following the detection of some serious structural defects.
Mr Frank Asante, TMA Public Relations Officer told the Ghana News Agency that Mr Yohane Amarh Ashitey, Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive, presented the keys to the Tema Regional Police Command represented by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Alhaji Baba Saanid Adamu, Deputy Regional Police Commander.
Mr Asante said the new Tema Manhean District Police Head Office contained a charge office, cells for males, females, and juveniles, toilet facilities, commander’s office, general office, and a conference hall for management.
He said due to the peculiar security nature of the densely populated Tema Manhean, a skeletal staff of the Police was currently manning the place to take complaints of crimes from residents, adding that they would refer to the Harbour Police or the Regional Command when the need arose.
Mr Asante said the MCE is charging the Tema Regional Police Command to maintain the facility to ensure that residents derived its full benefits for many years. -GNA
