The unavailability of basic logistics such as vehicles, Motors and financial assistance is hampering the efficient discharge of our duties.
Mr Kwadwo Asare, the National chairman of the Citizen Watchdog, a private security agent that gives information to the Ghana police service, said this at a press conference in the Ashanti region.
He said their agency covered the whole country which headquarters is in Kumasi with an estimated population of 500.
However, the group (Citizen watchdog) had no vehicle and other logistics to help police exposed and fight crime in the country.
Mr Asare stated that in spite of the challenges, the agency had performed creditably over the years, especially in crime combat, to ensure a peaceful environment within the country.
That, he noted, was achieved through vigorous day and night patrols, intelligence gathering and the collaboration from the police.
He said, with the increasing population, globalisation, and advancement in technology and electronic commerce, a new type of gathering information was needed to ensure a peaceful and stable society.
He expressed unhappiness that people most often found it difficult to volunteer financial assistance to them and therefore, appealed to the public to willingly give out some assistance to enable them apprehend criminals quickly.
The Chairman said robbery and killing of innocent souls without justice were issues negatively affecting the development of the area and stressed the need for opinion leaders to take steps to address them by supporting them with the needed logistics to ensure peace.
He commended the Ashanti regional police Commander for his continuous support to the agency and appealed for more cooperation to enhance their operations.
Some of the political parties who attended the conference applauded the group for their hard work and appealed to them to continue to respect the rights of the people.
They assured them of their readiness to support them whenever the need arose to help maintain peace in the area region.
