CI Ghana to help combat crime ahead of December polls

Listen to article

Accra, Sept. 9, GNA - The Citizens Intelligence Ghana (CI Ghana) is launching its community intelligence gathering for door to door community collection of crime data, ahead of the December 7, general election.

The exercise is aimed at collaborating with the security services to prevent crime in targeted places such as schools, workplaces, markets and other public places.

Mr Alfred Mills, Co-ordinating Director of CI Ghana, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Accra on Friday that the body is an intelligence gathering organisation involving citizens in intelligence compilation to support the authorities in crime prevention.

It is also interested in acts that undermine public interest and national security.

'CI-Ghana thereby calls on the public to help in crime prevention, which is a responsibility of all citizens of Ghana,' Mr Mills said. GNA
