The Western Regional Police Command has created four additional district police commands to enhance security in the region.

The four are; Agona-Nkwanta, Essiama, Wassa Akropong and Prestea, bringing the number of police districts to 18 in the region.

The creation forms part of the decentralization of the police administration in ensuring proactive policing.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP), Kofi Boakye, Western Regional Police Commander made this disclosure a meeting of heads of department in Sekondi, to review last year?s activities and plan the way forward.

He said the Apremdo and Inchaban police barriers would be re-positioned to ensure the free flow of vehicular traffic in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

DCOP Boakye, who is also the Social Protection Sub-Committee Chairman of the Regional Security Committee, said the Command had increased police personnel in various communities as part of its visibility and accessibility policy.

He pointed out that policing was a collaborative effort, and entreated various heads of institutions to make conscious efforts at liaising with the police administration to ensure effective and efficient policing.

DCOP Boakye appealed to the Ghana Highways Authority to mark the Tarkwa-Nsuaem /Agona-Nkwanta main road, to help reduce the needless road crashes and loss of lives on that stretch.

He said since there was no road marking on that stretch, many motor accidents had been recorded on the road in recent times.
