Police Gives

Dignitaries including Hon Eric Opoku, DCOP Kofi Boakye and DCOP Augustine Gyenin on the high table

THE ASHANTI Regional Police Command has cautioned criminals in the area to turn over a new leaf by assisting the police to deal with all forms of criminal activities in the region.

Giving the ultimatum, DCOP Kofi Boakye, Ashanti Regional Police Commander, said the police command would implement policies to neutralise all criminal activities in the region.

He cautioned that ?surrender or join the police to fight crime? stressing that the police would make life unbearable for hoodlums.

He said the criminals could assist the police by providing them with valuable information which could lead to the apprehension of hoodlums ?that are not ready to turn over a new leaf.?

The police commander was speaking at a send-off party organised for his predecessor; DCOP Augustine Gyenin at the Miklin Hotel in Kumasi, attended by people from all walks of life.

DCOP Boakye admonished, ?The Holy Bible has said that those that pull sword would die through the same sword, therefore avoid engaging in any act of violence.?

?The police is determined to enforce the law so that people would go about the legitimate businesses in peace so as to help expedite the country?s developmental aspirations,? he added.

DCOP Boakye who was recently posted as the regional commander promised to be fair, faithful and honest in discharging his duties, noting ?I will enforce the law without malice or affection.?

He praised DCOP Gyenin, his predecessor, for a good job done during his tenure as the regional commander which had helped to ensure peace in the area.

He charged the people to throw their weight behind DCOP Boakye who is taking over from him as commander, so that the police would continue being on top of the security situation in the region.

The Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon Eric Opoku, on behalf of REGSEC welcomed DCOP Boakye to the region, assuring him of the support of REGSEC to help the police combat crime in the area.
