Police strategies reduce crime rate in Volta Region

Preemptive crime fighting strategies has brought down the crime rate in the Volta Region considerably.

The Ho Municipal Area for example was virtually crime free during the past yuletide and only four highway robberies were recorded across the region the whole of last year.

Mr Alex Bedie, Regional Commander, said this in an address to a lively gathering of Police Personnel and guests during the Volta Police Command Socialization Day dubbed, (WASSA) in Ho on Friday.

He said the strategies include community and highway patrol, swoops, snap checks and continual public education through the print and electronic media.

Mr Bedie said the Volta Regional Branch of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU), was also actively coordinating the fight against crimes such as rape, defilement and spousal abuses among others with success.

He urged police to brace up for the daunting task of policing in an election year, having in mind that Ghana is in a democratic dispensation where all actions of the security must be in accordance with the laws.
