Ghana Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has announced plans by government to fix CCTV cameras in all Police stations across the country.
“Negotiations have just been completed for the rollout of Phase 2 of the Alpha Project which will involve the deployment of 8,700 CCTV cameras in all 216 districts with three command centres in Accra, Kumasi and Tamale.
Nana Addo Government in a bid to address this problem has announced plans of allocating some GH¢ 800million to the Ghana Police Service to ensure improvement in its operations.
In his 2018 State of the Nation Address, President Akufo-Addo also said the government is committed to resourcing the police with the necessary equipment to ensure that it carries out its mandate of enforcing law and order in the country.
“I do not need to repeat that crime wears no political colours, and I am certain that message has gone down to all…The law enforcement agencies will crack down very hard on all those who would disturb the peace of our nation…We will give the Police the resources they need to do their job,” Akufo-Addo said.
