Otsenkorang (C/R), Jan. 12, GNA – The Otsenkorang Watchdog Committee in the Agona West District has appealed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to send police personnel to the police station in the area.
Mr Tei, one of a ten-member watchdog committee at Otsenkorang near Nyakrom in the Central Region, told the Ghana News Agency that upgrading their police post to a fully fledged police station would help control the crime situation in the area.
He said the town has a permanent facility for a police post but the personnel have vacated the town to Agona Nyakrom.
Mr Tei said crime in the area is growing sophisticated with criminals in the area adopting various strategies to outwit innocent people.
Mr Tei, also a Purchasing Clerk of a licensed cocoa buying company, said “a day hardly goes by without thieves stealing goats and cocoa beans from the town”.
He said the construction of a permanent station and increasing the number of personnel would enhance police operations across the Otsenkorang communities.
