Dr Kwesi Biney, a Security Expert has called on the need for stakeholders to engage in constant education on security and its related issues to re-position the minds of the citizenry on various crimes happening in the country.
He charged the media to create segments for security education on their platforms so that some basic tips on crime and its related issues could be taught.
He proposed in an interview with Kwaku Aboagye Apenteng on Freedom Radio’s ‘’Yen Man’’ show when he was interviewed on the Abesim murder case, where one Richard Appiah, a 28-year-old architect, is suspected to have murdered 3 persons at Abesim in Sunyani.
Dr Biney explained that waiting for a crime to be committed before the assistance of a security expert is sought to give education on crime was not the best in addressing crime issues in the country.
”However, it was unfortunate that the media don’t have such allocated time for crime education”he indicated.
Advising the general public, he cautioned that it was high time people learn to walk in groups and should be watchful when joining a taxi or any other vehicle for their safety.
He was of the view that citizens should be vigilant when walking because they could be trailed by criminals and as well learn to give codes to their children as a way of protecting them from strangers.
‘’ We have self-intuition, when you feel you are not comfortable joining a vehicle, just don’t go ‘’ he emphasised.
He said citizens should develop the habit of picking up car numbers whenever they board a vehicle.
He said these are simple security tips that citizens should be sensitized to enable them to safeguard themselves against crimes in the communities.
