Jon Goulding presenting the items to COP James Oppong Boanuh

The British High Commission has donated items worth thousands of Ghana cedis to support the Ghana Police Service (GPS), Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and the Ambulance Service.

The items included a number of handcuffs, crowd preventive gears, a number of medical and safety equipment, water hose, helmets, bicycles and some quantity of clothing to support the vulnerable in society.

Presenting the items, Stuart Taylor, the Second Secretary Political of the British High Commission thanked the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for clearing the items from the ports on behalf of the services.

He said the GPS and their counterparts in the United Kingdom would continue to work together in combating crime.

He noted that even though the items sent were meant for the three services, ?the Ghana Police Service will take the majority of them to tackle crime.?

Mr Taylor said some of the items would also be sent to schools and other medical facilities for use.

The Director General in charge of Services, COP James Oppong Boanuh, who received the items on behalf of the GPS, thanked the officials of the British High Commission for the items donated.

He promised to send the other services their share of the items.

Other people who were present included the Quarter Master of the GPS, ACP Francis Doku, Jon Goulding of the National Crime Agency, British High Commission and others.
