Tema, Aug 21, GNA - The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) has provided the Tema Railways/Ports Police Station with modern facilities at the total cost of 385,769 million cedis to enable the police to work efficiently.

Speaking at the handing over of the facilities to the police on Saturday at Tema, Mr Gordon Anim, Director of Tema Port, said the assistance was to motivate the police to provide adequate security to Port.

Mr Anim urged the police to collaborate efforts with security personnel at the Port to ensure maximum protection to life and property. Chief Superintendent of Police Daniel Odai, Tema Deputy Regional Commander of Police, noted that crime has assumed sophisticated dimensions making modern crime fighting difficult and expensive. He, therefore, appealed to public to assist the security agencies to maintain law and order.
