The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Upper West Regional Police Command, Chief Inspector Gideon Ohene Boateng has said the introduction of police motorbike patrols has reduced crime in the Upper West Region.

He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, yesterday, May 19, 2022.

He said the command realized that criminals were using motorbikes, particularly, at night to commit crimes, hence the introduction of the police motorbike patrols.

“Now the command has sat down and realized that there are some miscreants among us who always use unregistered motorcycles. They used to operate at night during some periods to snatch handbags and valuables, among other offences that they commit. The Command was able to realize certain things about the modus operandi being used by these criminals, hence the initiation of the police motorbike patrols vis-à-vis the vehicular. It has run down the activities of the miscreants that are yielding fruit in the region.”

The Regional Police Command in a statement on May 18, 2022, cautioned against two people sitting on a motorbike after 9pm.

“The Regional Police Command however wishes to warn users of motorbikes to be wary of the operations of miscreants and to also observe the Road Safety Regulations to prevent being caught up with the law. The Command also wishes to extend its admonition to the general public on the following; two young persons on a motorbike in the night from 9 pm is temporary not permitted,” parts of the statement read.
