Police deploy more personnel for Easter Monday security

Today is Easter Monday and the Ghana Police Service have deployed more personnel to entertainment centers to ensure safety of revelers.
Easter Monday is known for heavy fun activities at beaches and other leisure centers as workers celebrate the climax of the Easter holiday period. Police say there will also be more men and on the streets to manage traffic flow.
Head of the Traffic Management Department of the Police Visibility Unit, ACP Enoch Adutwum Bediako, said last year they were able to curb crime due to a similar exercise.
Director General in-charge of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Angwutubuge Awuni, last week urged all Regional Commanders to ensure that people celebrate the Easter without any incident.
Meanwhile, thirty-one persons have so far been arrested by the Eastern Regional Police Command for engaging in various criminal activities in the ongoing Kwahu Easter Festival.
The acting Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) James Abass Abaah told Adom News the suspects were apprehended for non-compliance of traffic regulation, assault cases and involvement in drug-related activities.
ACP Abass however assured residents and tourists that his outfit is in control and would ensure the protection of lives and property during and after the Easter festivities in the region.
He said the police have stationed four hundred police personnel at strategic points in the Kwahu area to ensure security during the festival.
He noted that reported cases of crime and indecent behaviour at this year’s event have reduced as compared to the previous years.
He said the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) of the police have ensured order and compliance of traffic regulations throughout the festivities.
He cautioned the public about the use of unregistered vehicles and motor cycles in the area.
Thousands of revelers have gathered at the Kwahu Mountains where the annual Kwahu Easter Festival is ongoing.
