The Minority in Parliament has asked the Police Service to furnish them with crime statistics from the Ghana Police Service for the past three years.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu said the service has failed to furnish the public with crime numbers and trends over the period.
He noted that this has affected public policy and planning.
“For crime statistics we need it. What is the level of crime in Ghana; armed robber, rape, incest, all that? It guides us as a country on how to deal with matters of recidivism and others,” the Minority leader said.
The Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service as part of its mandate collates and publishes annual crime figures.
These include armed robbery, rape, fraud, murder among others.
Meanwhile, he has asked the President to demilitralised the country.
He said it is despicable to see the military hold bags of public officers.
The President he added must restore the dignity of the military.
