As part of the Proactive Preventive Policing Strategy, the K-9 Unit of the Ghana Police Service, has commenced its outdoor operations “with renewed energy”, the security agency has announced.
It said in a statement that “for the past couple of weeks, personnel with highly-trained security dogs under leash, have been strategically positioned across the capital for operational patrols”.
“This component of policing is aimed at increasing the visibility of personnel, improving intelligence gathering, tracking of contraband goods and improving upon other aspects of criminal investigations”, the statement said.
The police said plans are underway to extend this component of visibility to the other regions.
“We shall continue to pursue multiple security and visibility modules to increase our interactions with the public and aggressively fight crime in our communities”, the police promised.
“We are here because of you and we rely on your help and support to succeed”, the statement added.
