He extended his gratitude and appreciation to the Police Service for awarding the contract to the company.

Mr Fosu-Mensah Gyeabour, Ashanti Regional Police Commander, who received the keys to the houses, thanked the government for his concern to address the accommodation problem facing the Service.

He appealed to the police personnel to work harder to ensure peace, tranquillity and respect for law and order in the country.

"The good people of Ghana deserve the best services from the Police Service and we have the duty to give value for the money that the government is spending to improve upon our service conditions", he added.

Mr Gyeabour appealed to the police officers who would occupy the houses to take good care of them to ensure longer life span. He said similar projects are being undertaken in all the 10 regions of the country.
