"Government will continue to mobilize whatever assistance it can to enable the Police give the people the kind of service they deserve,” he added.
President Akufo-Addo further stated that government is working on procuring kits, gear and quantities of other essential equipment, as well as more vehicles for the Police.
He called on Police officers to take their work serious and to make sure that they put the logistics provided to good news.
“On Friday, 26th October, 2018, I presented 200 Toyota vehicles to the Ghana Police Service, in fulfilment of a pledge I made to them earlier this year, and with the assurance of more to come.
"I urged the Police to pay particular attention to the proper maintenance of these vehicles and use them to serve and protect the Ghanaian people. When the citizenry and police work together, we can be assured of our safety and security, and, then, we can channel all our energies and resources into building a progressive and prosperous nation,” the President later posted on his Facebook page.
