He said the current operational strategy of dawn swoops by the police in an attempt to weed out criminals from their hideouts and strategic measures implemented could largely account for the huge change in crime in the country especially in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
Speaking at a sod-cutting ceremony for the first police training school in the Brong-Ahafo Region at Kenyasi, he said the establishment of the police school is in line with government’s vision of setting up two new police training schools in the country.
The project which is been spearheaded by the Omanhene of Kenyasi No1, Nana Kofi Abiri with funding from Newmont Ahafo Development Foundation (NADEF).
The sod cutting forms part of the IGP’s three-day familiarisation visit to the Brong-Ahafo Region.
