Gov't to equip security agencies

In order to maintain law and order as well as protecting territories of the country, the government has assured that it will equip the country’s security agencies to enable them to deliver on their mandate.

The security services, especially the Ghana Police Service, have expressed concerns over the lack of logistics which they say is hampering the effective delivery of their work.

The Minister for Interior Ambrose Dery, in an interview with Citi news, said allocations have been made to these agencies to ensure efficiency.

“They [Police Officers] could be better positioned. They have something now. They have commitment. A number of them have lost their lives enforcing the law. We can enhance their capacity by giving more resources.”
