The Ghana Police Administration has hosted officials of the Bank of Ghana, Association of Banks at the National police headquarters to discuss security issues in the banking sector.
This follows attacks on some cash-in-transit operations which led to the killing of police officers on duty by suspected armed robbers.
The Police Administration says it is reviewing its strategy on the movement of cash across the country to provide security and safety to bankers and police officers on duty.
The meeting highlighted new strategies being mapped out by the Police Service to counter cash-in-transit robbery attacks and the challenges that are encountered with areas of collaboration between the Police and the banks examined.
The Police Administration assured stakeholders within the banking sector and the public that it is committed to ensuring a safe and secure atmosphere for the banking industry and guarantee the safety of all persons in the country.
The Administration, however, also assured all Police officers that their safety is paramount and the Service will go to all lengths to provide them with the needed protection to enable them to serve the society in peace.
The meeting was chaired by the IGP, and attended by members of the Police Management Board; the Governor of BoG and his Deputies; the President, the CEO, and other executive members of the Association of Bankers.
