The Director-General of Services of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), Commissioner of Police (COP) George Alex Mensah, has urged the public to abide by the safety protocols instituted by the government to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
He said those who would fail to observe the protocols and laws on the COVID-19 would be arrested and prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.
The Police Commissioner gave the advise when he received a donation of 3,9000 LANT soya milk, immune booster drinks and 5000 pieces of nose masks worth GH¢112,000 on behalf of the Service from the LANT Company Limited in Accra to support them in the fight against the COVID-19.
He commended the management of the company for the kind gesture and assured that the items would be used for the intended purpose.
The Chief Executive of the LANT Company Limited, Mr LAN Yong Sheng presenting the items said the donation was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility.
He said there was the need to support the personnel of the GPS to boost their immune system during this period.
He commended the personnel of the GPS for their dedication in the fight against the COVID-19 even at the peril of the lives.
Mr Sheng assured the GPS of the company’s continuous support in helping them achieve their goals.
He appealed to the public to abide by the protocols such as social distancing, washing of hands with soap under running water, the use of hand sanitisers and wearing of face masks.
