According to him, businesses could only flourish in an environment where peace and security thrive.

He said if businesses have confidence in security of the country, they are motivated to increase their investment by providing an effective service delivery, convenient shopping, affordable goods and services, more job opportunities, physical development and social cohesion among others.

“These and more can only be possible if by the determined effort and vigilance of the Ghana Police Service our investments are safe, property holdings are secured and our employees and Ghanaians in general feel safe to go about their daily routines,” he asserted.
