Police activates joint operation centres ahead of Supreme Court verdict
Joint operation centres manned by representatives of the various security agencies have been activated at the national and regional police headquarters in the country ahead of the Supreme Court verdict on the presidential election petition.
At the centres, the representatives of the agencies are to exchange information on the general law and order situation in the country.
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Mohammed Alhassan, made this known ahead of a closed-door meeting between the Police Administration and the National Media Commission (NMC) in Accra yesterday.
The meeting was to provide the platform for the two institutions to dialogue and look at ways in which they would collaborate to ensure law and order after the verdict.
The Supreme Court is expected to deliver the final judgement on the petition by the end of this month.
Mr Alhassan said the Police Administration had done the various threat assessments that were routine to it in the event of any problem that might arise and assured the NMC that morale among the men and women of the Police Service was high.
“As I speak, the joint operation centres, both here at the national and the regional headquarters, have all been activated. You go in there and you have representatives of all the various security agencies working, monitoring and exchanging information as to the general law and order situation in this country,” he said.
