Tamale, July 31, GNA –
Mr Akuribah Yaagy, the Director General of the National Patrols Department has
re-assured Ghanaians of the commitment of the police service to curb criminal
attacks on citizens as well as personnel of the security.

Mr Yaagy gave the
assurance in Tamale at the weekend during a meeting with some police personnel
in the Northern Region.

He indicated that, the
police administration and government shared a common grief on the recent
attacks on police personnel and some members of the public and this must be
tackled with all seriousness to curb the menace.

Mr Yaagy said three
gallant police officers lost their lives as a result of brutal and cowardly
attacks on them while a number of civilians also faced the same fate.

He said such tragedies
must be used to strengthen the police force to resolve to confront the
challenges with precision and must also work as a team to defeat such cruel
acts.

He said the government
was also ready to ensure that the necessary logistics in the form of
appropriate attire and equipment were provided to strengthen the police service
to enable it achieve its vision and mission.

He said President Nana
Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had prioritised community policing in his agenda and all
indications had shown that, “Something concrete is going to be done to better
equip and ensure safe, secure and peaceful communities.”

Mr Yaagy therefore
charged all police personnel to change their attitudes to work and must be more
professional in dealing with the public.

He urged all police
personnel to be robust and ruthless but within the laws in their efforts to
resolve violence and in addressing unprovoked attacks in the country.
