The Retired Commissioner of Police (COP rtd) Patrick Akolgo has expressed his strong conviction in the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, and his administration’s dedication to equipping the newly established Security Resilience and Peacebuilding Training and Education Center (SRAPBTEC) in Nangodi, Nabdam District.

According to Akolgo, a well-resourced SRAPBTEC will play a pivotal role in addressing the security challenges of the Upper East Region, thereby facilitating much-needed development.

The SRAPBTEC initiative marks a significant advancement in the region’s security framework, aiming to enhance the capabilities of security personnel through comprehensive training and education.

The center’s establishment underscores a proactive approach to bolstering security resilience and peacebuilding efforts, particularly in the run-up to and following the 2024 elections.

Speaking during the closing ceremony of the joint multi-agency counter-terrorism capacity building program, a collaborative initiative between Projects Banbo Ghana Police Service and Project Karel (UK), hosted by SRAPBTEC, COP-rtd Akolgo commended the IGP’s visionary leadership.

He emphasized that the training of security personnel is central to the IGP’s strategy for transforming the Ghana Police Service.

COP-rtd Akolgo, who was a special guest of honor at the event, highlighted the rapid establishment of SRAPBTEC as tangible evidence of the IGP’s commitment to improving security in the region.

The event also served as an opportunity to pass out over 300 newly trained personnel from various security agencies including the Ghana Police Service, Ghana National Fire Service, Ghana Immigration Service, and Customs Division, along with community volunteers.

Speaking to guests, the Upper East Regional Police Commander, ACP Mr. W.A.R Adofiem, added that the center is poised to serve all security agencies, fostering peace and resilience across the Upper East Region.

He explained further that the training provided has equipped participants with advanced knowledge, practical skills, and innovative strategies to excel in their respective fields.

“The completion of this program signifies a major milestone in our collective efforts to enhance the skills and knowledge of our multi-security agencies.”

COP-rtd Akolgo also called on stakeholders, including the business community and state agencies, to support the police administration’s efforts in resource mobilization for SRAPBTEC.

He therefore stressed the importance of collective action to restore peace and security in the region, ensuring a safe environment for residents and visitors alike.
