The Central Region Police Command is currently housing about 90 of its newly recruited personnel in the workshop of the Service due to lack of accommodation.
This has come about because accommodation projects for Police personnel and new recruits for the region have stalled.
The Regional Police Commander, DCOP Ransford Moses Ninson, said he is grateful to government for recruiting large numbers of police personnel to close up the deficit in the police-citizen ratio, but added that the corresponding facilities and equipment must be made available to aid their work.
The Commander was speaking during a meeting between heads of security in the Central Region and the Regional Minister, Mr Samuel Sarpong.
DCOP Ninson also appealed to government to urgently renovate all existing police stations and barracks which he said are in a deplorable state in the Region, and asked government to help with completion of all stalled accommodation projects.
