La Dadekotopon NCCE organises clean-up exercise for Police

Accra- The La Dadekotopon Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has organised a clean-up exercise at the Police Workshop Barracks, the Police Base Workshop, 37 Licence Office and Airport Police Barracks.

The exercise saw police men from higher to lower ranks and staff of NCCE cleaning up the barracks and streets of 37 Community and Airport Police Barracks.

Mrs Gloria Kudo, Director of the NCCE La Dadekotopon Office, told the Ghana News Agency that the security services were selected for the exercise because over the years, they had been organising the exercise with civilians and it was now time to do it with the security personnel.

She said the exercise would make civilians to take sanitation seriously if the police who are law enforcers indulging in same exercises.

She said the Commission would continue to stress on the need to maintain proper hygiene since the effect of indiscriminate disposal of refuse and open defecation do not only affect the individuals who litter the environment.

Mrs Kudo said the next step was to undertake and monitor how individuals were participating in clean-up exercises after educating the public on hygiene.

Our main problems here are indiscriminate disposal of refuse, open defecation and sand winning and therefore we need to organise a practical exercise aside the education we give through the media and on platforms that would help us monitor whether the education we give are being adhered to, she said.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr George Appiah Yamoah, In Charge of Technical Stores, Service Workshop Headquarters, at the Police Workshop Barracks in Accra in an interview with the GNA expressed the gratitude of the Police Service to the Commission.

He appealed to the NCCE to lobby on their behalf so they could be provided with sanitation materials, especially rubbish bins, adding that lack of bins increase the number of indiscriminate disposal of refuse at the barracks.
