Ghana police launch new website to increase visibility


Accra   –    The Ghana police Service on Thursday officially launched a new website alongside its social media handles to increase its visibility and accessibility in the country.
The Inspector-General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu, said this the launching of the website in Accra.
Asante-Apeatu said Ghana had almost 10 million internet users representing about 35 per cent of the population and about four million Facebook subscribers and many more on social media messaging channels.
He said that the police service recognised the need to tap into such potentials as a significant medium in reaching out to the public.
“There is a huge potential for us not only to make ourselves visible and accessible on the virtual space but also to leverage public support and share information, gather intelligence and have a constructive online engagement with Ghanaians, both home and abroad,’’ he said.
“It is in this respect that we gather here today to officially launch our new website and social media handles with the aim of taking our public engagements to another level,” he said.
The Director of IT of the Police Service and also Assistant Commissioner of Police, Samuel Winful, explained that the website was user-friendly and had four effective online interactive sessions with the public, including Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram handles.
“All this would enhance police operations as information can easily be obtained from members of the public,” he said.
