As part of efforts to show police visibility, gather intelligence, engage communities and bring the police to the doorstep of the public, officers from the Police Mounted Squadron together with some Police Divisional and District Commanders took policing to some universities in Accra.
For one week, the officers visited the campuses of the University of Ghana, University of Professional Studies and the Valley View University.
During the visit, the officers engaged the university community and listened to their security concerns.
The team also shared some insights about the Police Service and the need to work together with the communities we serve.
In addition, the officers answered some questions on basic policing issues and also gathered some intelligence on the security situations on the various campuses.
Following the visit, the Police Service has begun operationalising some of the intelligence picked during the exercise and putting in strategies to improve security at the universities.
“This exercise will be extended to other universities across the country.
“We are grateful to the academic staff, the student body, and all other members of the university community for their cooperation during our interactions with them.
“We wish to assure the public that we will continue to sustain this and other operational interventions and also work in partnership with you for safer and more secure communities,” the Police said.
