K’si Police Stations Gets Facelift
Three Police stations in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, precisely Sofoline, KO and Oduom/Anwomaso, have been renovated and furnished with ICT logistics and modern office furniture to enhance operations.
The exercise was undertaken by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) as a way of helping to boost security in the city.
The Kumasi Mayor, Osei Assibey Antwi, speaking at the KMA’s version of the ‘Meet the Press’ programme, said since security was key to national growth, the assembly considered it a social responsibility to commit itself to the development of all security infrastructures in the city.
The KMA chief said the assembly had also built a new fence wall around the Commercial Court at Asem and rehabilitated the Circuit Court at KMA to improve justice delivery.
He said most of the places in the city which recorded crime cases at night, due to darkness, had benefited from a street light project.
“We have strategically distributed and installed a staggering 1,000 streetlights in the city in recent times to stop criminals from operating”, he said with a smile.
“The KMA wants to create peaceful atmosphere for the citizenry and ensure safety and security of lives and property”, hence the numerous interventions”, he said.
