Still, on policing, personnel with highly-trained security dogs under leash have been strategically positioned across the Capital for operational patrols.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, on the Ghana Police Service page, they stated that this component of policing is aimed at increasing the visibility of personnel, improving intelligence gathering, tracking of contraband goods, and improving other aspects of criminal investigations.
Plans are, however, underway to extend this component of Police visibility to other regions.
