Ghana police to begin nationwide tour of worship centres

According to the IGP George Akuffo Dampare, the engagement is aimed at strengthening partnership between the service and Muslim communities

The Inspector-General of Police George Akuffo Dampare has said that the Ghana Police Service is set to commence a nationwide tour to all Muslim communities and places of worship to boost police public relations.

Speaking at a brief ceremony at the national mosque in Accra on Friday (14 July), Dampare said, “I want my father (National Chief Imam) to give myself and my colleagues the opportunity to go across the country in all the Muslim communities to engage the leaders, and our brothers and sisters so that we will build a very strong police-muslim community partnership.”

He said his outfit strives to create a more friendly police service.

“This will help us to ensure that the country is secure, the country is peaceful and law and order is maintained beyond measure.

“Now we are targeting the faith-based organisations and for that we need the blessing of my grandfather (National Chief Imam), when we cover all areas we will be in a better position to know the type of security and law to bring forth,” the police chief said.
