The initiative forms part of partnership between the YEA and Ghana Police Service on Community Safety and Security Innovation aimed at helping to address youth unemployment in the country.

Also, several youth are being trained  in the areas of health, education and security to enable them gain meaningful employment.

Mr Ibrahim noted that it is the responsibility of the police to protect the rights of citizens, saying “all of us are responsible players in that regard."

"That is why YEA saw it prudent to collaborate with the Ghana Police Service to carry out these efforts," he added.

According to him, YEA has a mandate to "develop, coordinate and supervise the creation of jobs for the teeming youth to fulfilling not only the vision of Ghana Police Service but also that of the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo."

In a statement, COP Akuribah Yaagy, the Director-General of the National Patrol Department (NPD) of the Ghana Police Service, said the new community policing strategy focuses on improved visibility and accessibility in the communities to guarantee maximum protection.
