The Upper West Regional police command has called on the public to be security alert in this festive season as criminals usually take advantage of it to rob people of their properties.
The Upper West Regional Police Commander, DCOP Mr. Frances Aboagye Nyarko in a press release issued on Monday December 30, 2019 charged the public to be security conscious but was quick to allay the fears of many by stating that, residents in the region are assured of maximum security by the police.
Frances Aboagye says that, miscreants can hit the region at any time, hence the need for citizens to be cautious when leaving the house for any activity or walking alone in the night as well as possessing a huge amount of money during this yuletide.
He also insisted that, commercial drivers who travel from Wa especially at night should make it a point to always contact the police for escort to avoid being robbed.
According to him, the command has extended its tentacles within 9 zones in the Municipality for day and night patrols with the use of motorbikes, entreating the public to assist the police with vital information on suspicions of criminal activities.
