Because of you, Tema is safe, and we are grateful for your leadership,” said Nii Adjetey Agbo.


IGP Dampare, in response, thanked the traditional leaders for their support and collaboration with the Police in their fight against crime. He emphasised that the Police are servants of the people and must work to ensure the safety and satisfaction of the community.
