Central Regional Police Command eulogises fallen heroes

Cape Coast- The Central Regional Police Command on Friday held its annual Memorial Day and flag raising ceremony dedicated to celebrating police officers who died through adversarial action while performing their lawful duties.

The memorial ceremony held at the Regional Police Headquarters at Cape Coast was a sober moment as the police personnel observed a minute silence for their departed colleagues.

The Police Memorial Day instituted in 2014, is celebrated every last day of November and is marked simultaneously across the 10 regions of Ghana at exactly 1030 hours.

This year’s ceremony was in grief of two of their colleagues from the operations unit, L/C Alhassan Mumuni and L/C Danso who lost their lives at various locations in the region.

Addressing the security personnel after the ceremony, the Central Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Paul Manly Awuni, said the Remembrance Day was significant because it enables the police to show their token of love to the bereaved family.

It was also to encourage others not to renege on their mandate to seek for peace to help maintain law and order at all times.

He was grateful to the personnel in the region for their sacrifices and dedicated services to the nation and urged the personnel to resolve to win back the trust of the public by changing their attitude to work.

The Regional Commander was also full of praise for the media for its role in highlighting their activities and supporting them in maintaining law and order.
