The Ghana Police Service has launched a ‘Night Motorbike Visibility’ initiative in the nation’s capital, Accra to maintain law and order during the Christmas and New Year festivities.
The exercise, backed by enhanced Community policing, targets crime prone areas and major highway intersections, according to the Service, and this will be replicated in other regional capitals and major towns.
The Police Administration, which has in recent times been equipped with a fleet of vehicles and motorbikes has stepped up day and night patrols nationwide as part of crime prevention measures.
Last week, the Police took delivery of 200 motorbikes donated by the Electricity Company of Ghana to enhance operations. This forms part of a consignment of 1,000 motorbikes pledged.
You will recall that in August 2021, the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, launched the Horse Patrol operations at the National Joint Operations Headquarters-Accra.’
The patrol, is part of the Ghana Police Service’s crime prevention and detection, which will provide security in a friendly and interactive manner’ he said at the launch.
He said their deployment is to complement other interventions such as Community Foot Patrol, Visibility Patrol, and the Motorcycle Traffic Management and Mobility Teams especially in Tema and Accra.
