Police announce new numbers to beef up security

The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has introduced three new security emergency numbers as part of security arrangements to tackle any violence that may erupt during the elections.

“This is part of security arrangements to ensure it does not lose sight of any vital information or acts of violence that have the tendency to mar the peaceful conduct of the elections,” said a statement signed by Head of Public Affairs Unit Accra Regional Police, Effia Tenge. Below is the full statement:

ELECTION SECURITY EMERGENCY NUMBERS

The Accra Regional Election Security Taskforce has introduced three new emergency numbers in addition to existing ones to enable the public and the media to reach its information desk during the 7th December general elections. The numbers are:

055 – 799 9911 055-799 99 22 050-710 23 69

This is part of security arrangements to ensure it does not lose sight of any vital information or acts of violence that have the tendency to mar the peaceful conduct of the elections.

The Regional Taskforce is hereby calling on the good people of Ghana to be vigilant and call the emergency lines on any situation that calls for swift Police intervention. It will, however, appeal to the public to desist from circulating speculations, fabrications and the false information especially on social media platforms and direct all information of police interest to its information desk.
