Kwaebibirem District Assembly to house Kade Police

Listen to article

Kade, May 11, GNA - The Kwaebibirem District Assembly is to construct a ten-unit police barracks at Kade as the first phase of a project to house all police personnel posted there.

The District Chief Executive, Mr Yaw Yiadom-Boakye, who announced this in an address to the Assembly on Friday, noted that since social and economic activities in the district were fast growing, there was also a corresponding increase in the crime rate, which called for effective security network to contain the situation.

He expressed regret, however, that the acute accommodation problem facing the Police Service in the district had made it impossible for the strength of the personnel to be increased hence the Assembly decided to provide the accommodation after holding discussions with the authorities.

According to him, the management of the Ghana Oil Palm Development Company (GOPDC) had agreed in principle to assist in the project since they would also benefit from an increase in the strength of the police personnel in the area.
