The security of the District is under the auspices of the District Security Council (DiSEC) which is chaired by the District Chief Executive. The Council meets quarterly and during emergencies to deliberate on issues related to public safety. The membership of the DiSEC  include the DCE, District Police Commander, Bureau of National Investigation Officer (BNI), Ghana Immigration Service  Officer, Ghana National Fire Service Officer,  District Coordinator-NADMO and Chairman of Justice and Security Sub-Committee.

Security services or agencies in the district are the Police, Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) and NADMO. The Police enforce law and order in the district. The security situation in the district has always been generally peaceful and calm. Reported security problems at the Police Station are often in connection with issues relating to theft, assault, domestic violence, offensive conduct (threats of death). The major security problem that the district has quite often been grappling with is the activities of sand winners, where people’s farms get destroyed with little or no compensation to the victims, non-reclamation of sand-winning site, and the unknown agenda of a foreigner (Known as Rastaman) who is acquiring/purchasing huge parcels of land all over the district and which is of course making farmers lose their farmlands and also displacing of families.
