Superintendent Otuo Kwabena Acheampong, Tema Regional Police Crime Officer of the Ghana Police Service has urged the public to install Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in their various homes and at strategic office facilities to ameliorate crime and improve security.
He said the installation of CCTV cameras would help capture people who commit crimes in various localities to hasten investigations and apprehension.
This was disclosed at the Tema Regional Office of the Ghana News Agency's Ninth End of Month Stakeholder Engagement and Workers Appreciation Day, which is a platform rolled out for state and non-state actors to address national issues.
The event also serves as a motivational mechanism to recognize the editorial contribution of reporters towards national development in general, the growth and promotion of the Tema GNA as the industrial news hub.
Speaking on: “Overview of the security situation in the Tema Region – Role of Stakeholders in crime prevention,” Supt. Acheampong said installation of CCTV cameras was part of the expectations by the Regional Police Command in 2022 to reduce crime so that people would live in a safe and secure at their various workshops and residential homes.
The Tema Regional Crime Officer noted that, installing CCTV cameras would record footage of crime scenes, which would be an immense support to aid investigators to unravel circumstances of crimes.
He also beseeched the public to form neighbourhood watch committees to make crime a high-priced activity for culprits to engage in.
He added that, the citizenry must endeavour to volunteer in sharing information and tip-off to the police with an assurance to get their identities protected.
