The Inspector-General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo-Dampare, yesterday led some members of the Police Management Board and officers of the Accra Regional Police Command to the National Mosque to speak with the National Chief Imam, His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, some elders of the Muslim community, and other Muslim believers.
The visit forms part of efforts by the Police in keeping with the Police Service’s strategy of bringing policing to the doorsteps of the people.
According to the Service, more of such visits will be rolled out across the country as part of efforts to strengthen relations with faith-based organizations.
The visit was part of the Accra Regional tour by the IGP which began two weeks ago to touch base with personnel of the region as has been done for other regions, engage with members of the public and assess the service’s delivery to enable us serve the public better.
So far, the IGP and his team have visited the Amasaman, Adjen Kotoku, Pokuase, Tesano, Mile 7, Achimota, Cantonments, La, Osu, Nima, Kotobabi and Adabraka Police Districts.
