Kpando Police Headquarters needs major facelift

policeKpando Municipal Police Headquarters is in dire need for repairs and a major facelift to help create a decent place of work and restore the morale of personnel posted to the Municipality.

The Municipal police headquarters, which is located at the Kpando Municipal Assembly yard, is often described by visitors as a “cubicle with a leaking roof” and the offices lack furniture thus visitors are accommodated under trees.

The GNA witnessed this sad situation when a team of the National Road Safety Commission from the Ho office visited the Town for a road safety campaign.

Visitors to the headquarters noticed that the offices do not even have washrooms so personnel and visitors go into nearby bushes to attend to the call of nature.

The GNA also observed that the flag masts to hoist the Ghanaian and Police flags were bare as it is believed the flags were an eyesore and too “too bad” to be hoisted.

Mr Sebastian Akyeampong, Volta Regional Manager of the National Road Safety Commission who was visibly disturbed by the situation, commended the command for its professionalism in spite of their real challenges.

During a road safety campaign at the Kpando main GPRTU Taxi station, Mr Emmanuel Atiga, Vice Chairman of the Union, complained about the bad nature of roads in the town and the absence of bus stops and road signs in the central business district.

Mr Daniel Kwasi Asiedu, an Executive Member of the Union, said it was unfair that only one police officer was handling motor traffic and transport issues and was unable to cover the entire Municipality.

Mr Akyeampong commended the Union for their professional attitude and the few accidents recorded.

The team later presented crossing aids to some basic schools in the Municipality.
