The security situation in the District has remained relatively calm. Due to the peculiar situation in the district, the security situation can be grouped into four areas namely; Community unrest, Chieftaincy unrest, Activities of Armed robbers and Road Safety.
There is no unrest in the various communities in the District with regards to creed, sex, tribe, ethnic or political affiliations. Our communities co-exist in peace with one another.
Despite various protracted chieftaincy situations in the District, none has resulted into any violent outrage threatening life and property.
ARMED ROBBERY ACTIVITIES
The district is prone to Armed Robbery activities. There is reliable information that the armed robbers use the scarp between Fomena and Asokwa as their operational zone. Unfortunately, Police strength in the district is low and therefore relies on the adjoining Districts for reinforcement to be able to combat highway robberies.
P O L I C E
The Police personnel strength in the district is woefully inadequate. The district capital cannot even boast of (15) fifteen Police Officers whilst the major communities in the District namely; Aboabo, Fumso have less than five (5) Police personnel or none at post. Police patrol is also irregular due to lack of patrol vehicles and personnel. With the introduction of the community policing under the youth and employment programme in the district, there is hope that the armed robbery situation will be brought under control.
