The National Chief Imam, His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, was visited by Inspector-General of Police Dr. George Akuffo-Dampare as part of the Police Service’s initiative to bring police to the doorsteps of the public.
IGP Dampare visited the National Mosque to speak with the Chief Imam while accompanied by a few members of the Police Management Board and officials from the Accra Regional Police Command.
Some Muslim community leaders and other devout Muslims welcomed them.
After giving a brief speech on how religious organizations might support the security forces, the IGP was blessed by the Chief Imam.
The IGP visited as part of his two-week-old regional tour of Accra to meet with local officials, engage with the people, and review service performance in order to improve how the police interact with the general population.
The Amasaman, Adjen Kotoku, Pokuase, Tesano, Mile 7, Achimota, Cantonments, La, Osu, Nima, Kotobabi, and Adabraka Police Districts have all been visited thus far by the IGP and his team.
As part of initiatives to improve ties with faith-based organizations, more of these trips are anticipated to be implemented around the nation.
