14,200 police personnel deployed to secure a crime-free Christmas

By on

At least 14, 200 police officers will be across the country to enforce law and order during this festive season.

Director General of Operations, COP Dr. George Dampare at a media briefing on Thursday, said some 18,000 officers will continue to perform traditional policing duties to ensure an incident-free festive season.

“We are deploying over 14,200 personnel across the country directly, and specifically for the Christmas and New Year operational duties. At the National operational level, we are putting across 1,200 from the National Operational department, the Counter-terrorism unit, the SWAT unit, RDF, FPU, special protection unit and another specialized unit of the service to go across the country and support all the regional commands and ensure that we bring sanity to our communities,” he said.

“In addition to the 14,200, additional 18,000 police officers across the country will be performing traditional policing functions which are indirectly related to this festive period duties,” he added.

Reports from the police service indicate that the Christmas season sees an increase in crime especially due to the many public outdoor events.

This makes it imperative for heightened police presence and operation, especially during the period.

But COP Dampare believes the police is adequately prepared to provide maximum security and guarantee the safety of citizens this Christmas.
