ACP Wejong Ali Adofiem, the Upper East Regional Commander, has lauded the SRAPBTEC center as a significant milestone in enhancing the capabilities of the region’s security agencies through comprehensive training and education.

According to ACP Adofiem, the center’s role extends beyond mere education, fostering robust camaraderie among security personnel by facilitating shared experiences in their diverse fields.

“Trainees will learn how to plan to ensure that an unwanted situation is prevented, the uses of combat motor riding, K9 dogs, weapons handling, and many more. They should also be resilient and build a stronger bond amongst the civilians,” ACP Adofiem emphasized.

The commander was speaking at the closing ceremony of a joint multi-agency counter-terrorism capacity building program. This initiative, a collaboration between Projects Banbo Ghana Police Service and Project Karel (UK), was hosted by the SRAPBTEC center.

During the event, the trainees demonstrated their readiness for the 2024 elections, underscoring their preparedness to ensure peaceful and orderly conduct.

“Our goal is to form strong cooperation amongst ourselves in security agencies. Today’s exercise is showcasing our preparedness to ensure peaceful elections come 2024 in support of the electoral commission,” ACP Adofiem stated.

He highlighted that 332 personnel from various security agencies, including the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB), some electoral commission officers, and community volunteers, have benefited from the training at the center.

Additionally, 567 new recruits were trained a few weeks prior, indicating a broad and ongoing effort to enhance security capabilities.

“The facility was established to build the capacity and share experiences of the security agencies from the police to the Customs division, serving the five regions of the North,” he noted, emphasizing the center’s wide-reaching impact.

Mr. Adofiem concluded by reaffirming the center’s commitment to continually build capacity among security agencies, ensuring optimal service delivery and operational excellence.

The guest participants, which included all the district and Municipal Chief Executives, religious leaders, chiefs, and some community volunteers and members, applauded the commander for the initiative.

Rex Asanga, the Bolgatanga Municipal Chief Executive, used the opportunity to encourage trainees to use the knowledge gained to ensure peace during and after the upcoming elections.
