Help fix CCTV cameras at every police station – Irbard begs Ghanaians
Security expert, Irbard Ibrahim, has advocated for the installation of CCTV cameras at every police station in the country.
His call follows the raid on the Kwabenya Police station by some unidentified gunmen on Sunday. The death resulted in the death of Police Inspector.
In a statement, Mr Ibrahim urged Ghanaians to come together in groups to adopt a police station in their area by purchasing surveillance cameras for the station.
Below is the full statement:
“ I have received with great shock the brazen attack on our gallant men and women in uniform serving on the frontline to keep us and the Republic of Ghana safe.
I condemn the armed attack in Kwabenya and call on the IGP to improve the security conditions of police men and women around the country.
It is a great surprise that police stations that should be seen as sanctuaries of safety for citizens lack basic gadgets like surveillance cameras.
I call on Ghanaians to come together in groups to adopt a police station in their area by purchasing surveillance cameras for the station.
Ghana’s security bosses should improve the working conditions of police officers by providing better insurance, remuneration, contract restaurants to provide ration to night patrol teams and checkpoints, provide tasers and other operation gadgets to keep them motivated.
When the ones supposed to keep us safe are themselves in danger, what does that say about the state of security in the Republic of Ghana?
