The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has cautioned motorists, commuters and pedestrians who use certain streets, highways and locations in Accra to be wary of criminal activities.

The areas are the Graphic Road along the flyover, Awudome cemetery road, Accra Mall roundabout, La beach – on the Teshie Nungua road, George Walker Bush Highway popularly called the NI and the Pokuase-Amasaman road.

"This caution is based on empirical analysis of street crime trends within the region, where some miscreants deprive commuters of handy items and personal valuables such as mobile phone, purses, tablets, handbags and laptops at the least distraction or inattentiveness," a statement signed by the Accra Regional Police Command Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Effia Tenge has said.

According to the statement, motorists and passengers are advised to conveniently roll up their windows when in traffic to prevent criminals from having access to personal valables.

The statement also asked the public to desist from displaying handy items and electronic devices in vehicles.

"Be extra careful when approached by hawkers to sell items whilst in traffic; be wary of strangers especially ladies who approach you for a free ride; and ensure that vehicle doors are locked up in the course of journeys," the statement from the police added.

The police further assured the public to be extra vigilant to avoid falling victims to the criminals, as it works towards getting rid of such miscreants from the society.

The general public can contact the Police on emergency numbers 191 and MTN/VODAFONE Toll Free Number 18555 in times of distress, the statement indicated.
