Presenting the vehicle in the presence of the district police commander DSP Broni, the Municipal Chief Executive of the area, Kwadwo Ansah, Constituency Executives and some chiefs in the area, the benevolent parliamentarian said the donation is part of the promises she during the campaign period prior to 2016 elections.
“We want lives of people here to improve, security is my number one priority. Officers at Juaben municipality have been struggling in their operations particularly due to lack of transport resources, and I hope by donating this vehicle and the motorbikes, we’re easing the burden,” she said.
On his part, DSP Broni hailed Hon Ama Pomaa Boateng for supporting Juaben municipal police, describing the gesture as a sign of patriotism.
He also urged the officers to put the vehicle to good use so it serves the surrounding communities better.
“We want people who are committed to support the police so that together we tighten security in Juaben. The police is facing a number of issues and transport issues are common. Sometimes we’re accused of arriving late at crime scenes[ but] the government alone can’t solve all the problems. With this vehicle and the motorbikes, we hope security will improve in this area”, he said.
DSP Broni appealed to people in the municipality to support efforts by the police through community policing strategies so that there is improved relationship between the police and members of the community.
