Mr. Awie Frey said, “We are optimistic that the infrastructure will provide a befitting office for the Obuasi District Police Command and will ultimately not only enhance law enforcement efforts but also contribute to the overall well-being of our communities.”

The Ashanti South Regional Police Commander, ACP George Ankomah, on behalf of the Inspector-General of Police expressed appreciation to AngloGold for the construction of the facility.

He charged the residents in the area where the new District Police Headquarters is situated to liaise with the officers and report all criminal cases to them for investigations to be conducted.
