ACP Fleance Senam Adikah, the Akim Oda Divisional Police Commander, has advised police personnel posted in the area not to go after married women, as this would establish enmity between them and the public.
That according to him would encourage the public to give them respect so that the staff could co-exist peacefully with the members of the community.
During the inauguration of a new police station at Akyem Nkwateng, in the Birim North District of the Eastern Region, ACP Adikah offered advice. The inauguration was carried out by Mr. John Osei Frimpong, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Abirem Constituency, who was accompanied by Mr. Remond Nana Damptey, Chief of Akyem Nkwateng, Mr. Nana Amanie Ankrah II, and Mr. Remond Nana Damptey, District Chief Executive for the region.
The facility, which cost GH 236, 126.28, was constructed under the supervision of the MP and the DCE through the Common Fund of the District Assembly (DACF).
The hospital, with separate male and female cells, is fitted with sanitary facilities and will serve, among other communities, Akyem Nkwateng, and its surrounding communities, including Kuntenase, Dodoworaso, Akumafitaa, Abohemaa, Asuabena, Botwe, and Asoase.
Deepening human relationships
The Akim Oda Divisional Police Commander, addressing the chiefs and the people of the region, said it was necessary for police personnel to deepen their relationship and mutual trust between the police and the members of the community.
ACP Adikah said that such a relationship was essential for successful police and public protection.
He said the new police station would improve the fight against illegal actions by the police and ensure community sanity.
According to him, the police administration must play its part in ensuring that the present prevailing country’s stability and security would not be compromised.
