According to him, the new bikes will be a major boost to better fighting crime.

“We cannot just wait to receive them and start putting them to us and making this country safer than it was yesterday and also going to make it safer than we are going to make it today.”

Presenting the vehicles, President Akufo-Addo indicated that the move forms part of the government’s commitment to retooling the police to achieve its set targets.

He promised to increase the number of bikes to 5,000 by end of next year.

The President subsequently charged the Police to ensure no community is left behind.
