Furthermore, Chief Inspector Darko has also put up another two police posts at Lakeside and Container.
According to residents, Chief Inspector Darko used part of his monthly salary to commence the construction of the edifice until some individuals supported him in making his dream of finding dignified accommodation and offices for personnel under his watch.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with GBC Ghana Online, the Contractor in charge of the project, Mr. Emmanuel Amuzu said Chief Inspector Darko and other donors had spent about Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Ghana cedis (Gh 450, 000) so far.
“For now, we have completed four rooms serving as accommodation for some officers and a charge office, work on a seven-room story building is also ongoing at the same premises. So, in all about Ghc450 thousand cedis has been spent so far,” Mr. Amuzu reiterated.
A resident, Mr. James Mensah, who was said to have donated some bags of cement for the construction of the building expressed his profound gratitude to Chief Inspector Darko for his high level of commitment to duty.
”The people are really pleased with the wonderful work being carried on by the Police Chief and that, he would soon write officially to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to inform him about the extraordinary performance and commitment shown by Chief Inspector Darko.”
He, therefore, called on other well-to-do residents to donate towards the project for its early completion.
Madam Adzara Ibrahim explained that, until Chief Inspector Darko was transferred to the area, there were a lot of crimes which made it almost impossible for people to go about their business during night time due to the high crime rate but through the hard work of the officers, the crime rate has gone down.
