The Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Edward Oduro Kwateng has advised personnel to be vigilant when performing duties particularly at the barriers following recent crashes of police officers by some errant drivers.
The worrying trend, he bemoaned, has attracted the concern of the Police Administration, hence his visit to caution personnel against speeding drivers.
The Regional Commander who toured the Anfoega, Kpando, Hohoe, and Fodome police jurisdictions interacted with personnel as part of the years’ planned schedule, to assess the current work conditions, and discuss measures in addressing identified challenges.
He reminded personnel of their ‘officers’ safety’ being paramount at all times to avoid unfortunate deaths.
DCOP Edward Oduro-Kwateng also charged District Commanders to ensure that personnel on barrier duties use reflectors to make them more visible to motorists, especially at night to avoid unnecessary loss of officers from callous drivers.
The Deputy Regional Commander, ACP Andrew Boadu Ekumah also encouraged personnel to maintain a high level of discipline at all times and be courteous when dealing with members of the public.
The Regional Crime Officer Chief Superintendent Felix Anyidoho advised personnel to follow the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) when effecting arrests to reduce avoidable casualties.
The team also paid a courtesy call on the North Dayi District Assembly and Fodome Traditional area.
