The Divisional Police Command of Agona Swedru in the Central Region says that the crime rate in the locality has dropped significantly in recent times.
According to the Agona Swedru District Police Commander, DSP Paul Wilson Baah, who spoke to Citi News, the police service has “done a lot” and has put measures in place to ensure that crime in the area is adequately dealt with.
“The divisional commander, divisional crime officer and all the officers in Swedru are working hand in hand.”
The Police Command had announced in June that it would intensify patrols in the area following persistent attacks by armed robbers.
Despite their recent successes in dealing with crime in the locality, DSP Baah has called on the general public to assist the police in any way they can in order to maintain this feat.
“We believe that the cooperation from the general public will help us achieve better than we have already done.”
