That follows the presentation of one of the “Kantanka Omama”, pickup vehicles, to the Ghana Police Service to enhance the work of the police.

The cost of the vehicle was not made available.

Before handing over the keys to the vehicle to the police at a ceremony at the Police headquarters in Accra, yesterday, the Chief Executive Officer of the Kantanka Group of Companies, Mr Kwadwo Sarfo Jnr, said the vehicle was to assist the police in combating crime.

He said the presentation should be seen as a move against crime as it would enable the police to take the fight to criminals.   

The Kantanka Group of Companies, he said, would be presenting two additional cars to the police later to enable them to provide efficient services to the public. 

Mr Sarfo said it took three weeks to assemble the vehicle, which had the normal features of a pickup apart from the voice control system.

“It is very robust and economical with a fuel consumption of 2.7 litres. The benefit is that there is no duty components attached to the price,” he said later in an interview.

He stated that the company would launch its commercial fleet of vehicles before the end of the year but declined to give further details.

Receiving the keys to the vehicle, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, said the vehicle would help the police to be more effective in their efforts to fight crime.

“We thank this ingenious Ghanaian company for choosing the Ghana Police Service as the first public institution to use its vehicle. I can see that the vehicle can stand the test of time,”he said.

He said the police in their bid to serve the public had created new divisional, district and police stations throughout the country.

“We have created an additional 28 police divisions, 65 districts and 165 police stations to complement the existing police commands in spite  of our constraints with logistics. We believe stakeholders like you will support us with logistics. We will continue to take initiatives and not wait for manna to fall.”

The new commands bring the total number of police stations across the country to 882, while the district police commands have been increased to 267. There are currently 77 divisional commands.
