The police administration has brought smiles to the face of a 29-year-old woman, whose husband, Lance Corporal Ebenezer Obeng died in the line of duty in a road accident in 2013.
Pamela Obeng, a mother of two, has been offered a permanent employment at the Brong-Ahafo Regional Police Clinic as a civilian employee.

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) on February 12, 2014 donated an undisclosed amount of money to the lady just after the funeral of the deceased police officer.
