The Inspector-General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu, has sent a stern warning to his men. According to the IGP, police officers should be mindful of their relations with the general public.

Speaking at the commissioning of the Tema Community 25 District Police headquarters built by residents of the area, Asante-Apeatu warned his men against what he called "brute acts and indiscipline”.

Dear colleagues, take note that the current technology-driven world makes police indiscipline and unprofessional conduct easily exposed. It is therefore important that we do the best within our means to serve with respect and honour,” he said.

According to the IGP “professional errors constitute a learning process but brute acts of indiscipline will never be allowed to go uninvestigated and unpunished.”

He applauded the residents of the community for their support and cooperation. He thanked them for coming together to fund the project, and appealed for continuous support in terms of logistics.

The newly built police station would serve residents and the business community within the area.

It has a Station Officer’s office, armoury, exhibit room, washroom, female cell, juvenile and male cell, all fitted with ensuite washroom, Interrogation rooms, CID office, conference room, commander's washroom, control office for CCTV and drone operation, as well as a commander office and charge office.
