He said the police would ensure strong presence and visibility at various points including the Kumasi Central Business District, the Roman Hill, Kejetia and the Central Market, which have high attraction for criminals.

DCOP Boakye told journalists in Kumasi that although crime in the region generally was on a downward trend, the police would not be complacent as to some people crime was a trade and would always come up with new strategies to outwit their victims and the police.

He said the police were determined to work hard and with passion to drastically reduce crime to allow the law abiding to go about their business in peace and without fear.
He said the police had acquired more motorbikes to enable them to effectively patrol all areas, adding that District and Divisional Police Commanders, have also been asked to release their vehicles for highway patrol.
The Regional Commander appealed to the public to continue to provide them with useful leads to track down and arrest miscreants.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
