The Brong Ahafo regional police command says it will involve more female police personnel in its activities in the region.
The regional police commander, DCOP Maxwell Atingane, said this at the annual celebration of the West Africa Security Services (WASSA) on Friday, according to a report by dayzentertainment.com.
Commending the police for their hard work and commitment which he said led to the reduction of crime in the region, DCOP Atingane reportedly said that there was also the need for female personnel to be at the forefront of fighting crime.
"We need to encourage women to also rise. Most often we tend to suppress them but it is my policy to make sure that women take part actively in whatever we do here to create a difference ... in patrols and other duties, we will encourage them to take part", he was quoted as saying.
