No violent crimes were recorded in all the 19 districts in the Brong Ahafo Region before, during and after the Christmas and the New Year periods.
This was as a result of the deployment of both police and military personnel in the districts and on the Techiman-Kintampo-Tamale highway, which is prone to highway robbers.
According to the Brong Ahafo Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, some members of the patrol team were deployed at watch night services in the various churches and other entertainment centres to provide security,” he stressed.
He gave the assurance that the highway patrols would continue, while the Police Dragons Patrol units would also be in force to sustain the clampdown on criminals in every nook and cranny of the region.
He said the police Dragon Patrol foiled four highway robbery attacks on the Techiman-Kintampo Road in which the robbers had used logs to block a section of the road.
DCOP Oppong-Boanuh expressed his appreciation to the public for their co-operation and urged them to volunteer more information on suspicious characters to the police.
