Koforidua, March 31, GNA - Ms Mavis Ama Frimpong, the Eastern Regional Minister, has pledged the support of the Eastern Regional Co-ordinating Council towards the launch of the National Stop Crime Campaign.
The campaign is being championed by Ambassador Extraordinaire of Prisons, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng.
Ms Frimpong was speaking during a courtesy call on her by the Prisons Ambassador in Koforidua and appealed for the maiden launch to be done in the Eastern Region.
She said the initiative had the capacity to significantly reduce crime in the country, particularly in the Eastern Region which had a high crime rate.
Ms Frimpong was particularly happy that the Ghana Education Service had given the green light for the Ambassador Extraordinaire of Prisons to screen prison documentaries in pre-tertiary institutions across the country.
She lauded Mr Kwarteng for coming up with the National Stop Crime Campaign and urged stakeholders in crime prevention to support the initiative.
Mr Kwarteng promised the Minister that the campaign would be launched in the Eastern Region after the national launch in Accra to sensitise the people on the need to refrain from criminal activities that could send them to prison.
