He said Beposo with a population of about 7,800 have only four Police personnel in the town and it is because of this that they have decided to collaborate with the Traditional Council and the District Security Council (DISEC) to organize Neighborhood Watch Committee to provide security in the town.

Commenting on the steps of the Assembly Members, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Sakyi confirmed the concerned of the Assembly Members and said security is a shared responsibility and the police are ready to assist in the selection and training of the committee.

He said currently, there are only four police personnel in the town which is woefully inadequate, so the Neighbourhood Watch Committee will go a long way to enhance security in the town.

It sounds like the people are suffering under this imposed 17% inflation of the nation.....despite its strong growth. In any case petty crime is usually by the same individuals over and over...in any society.
Maybe one strategically placed small spy camera could sort it out....as I used on my private property.
