Work on the first phase of the proposed offices for the newly promoted Kpone District Police Headquarters, located at Kokompe, a suburb of Kpone, is about 60 per cent complete.
When completed, it will include the office of the District Commander, office of the head of the Motor Transport Traffic Unit (MTTU), general office or the orderly room, reception and a waiting room.
So far, about GH¢600,000.00 has been spent on the project, which is being pre-financed by the Kpone Traditional Council (KTC), which also released one acre of land for the construction.
The second phase of the project, which will include the residence of the District Police Commander and furnishing among others, is expected to begin soon after the completion of the first phase of the project.
An amount of GH¢200,000.00 is expected to be spent on both phase one and two of the project, to ensure that police personnel posted to the area would not be found wanting.
The Registrar of the Kpone Traditional Council, Harry Anthony Attipoe, appealed to corporate bodies operating on the land of Kpone, heavy industrial area, and the free zone enclave, especially those who one way or the other made pledges, to make do with their promises and support the project.
According to him, since they were going to be the major beneficiaries, it would be proper for them to honour the promises they made before, during, and after the sod-cutting ceremony of the project.
He mentioned the corporate bodies which the KTC has had discussions on the need to support the project as Aluworks, WAHOME, Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), Atlas, and the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA).
Others are, Tema Steel Works and Barry Callbeaut Ghana Limited, Dufie Farms, Kingdom Transport Services, B-5 Plus, Lovely Tanker Yard, Samplastic and the Beco Company Limited.
The rest include, Shifu Company Limited, Sanbao Pharmaceutical Ghana Limited, Automotive Springs, Freight Link, Marine Services, Free Zones Board and Dangme Rural Bank.
He, however, disclosed that five companies, including the Ghana Association of Garages, Sambao Pharmaceutical Ghana Limited, Myrock Salt Industries Limited, Aluworks and Free Zones Board, have contributed ¢32 million towards the project, adding a private individual single-handedly donated 50 bags of cement towards the project.
