He said personnel serving in the area were over-burdened with heavy workloads which had negative toll on their output.
Mr. Ouattara made the appeal at the inauguration of a single-storey Divisional Police Headquarters at Dormaa-Ahenkro in the Bono Region.
The event was attended by top hierarchy of the Police and heads of other security agencies from the region, students of second cycle institutions, politicians from the area, staff of the Municipal Assembly and the general public.
The MCE called for the proper maintenance of the building to serve its intended purpose.
Aside the donation of the five-acre land onwhich the building is situated by the Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II, he also fully-funded the project with proceeds from the Dormaa Stoollands sale.
Until recently the Dormaa Central Divisional Police Command was for many years using rented apartments as charge office, administrative and other operational duties.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr. Godfred Owusu Boateng, the Brong-Ahafo Regional Police Commander stressed the need for the public to volunteer information to the Police to arrest certain blacklisted criminals in the society and adding that, there are special rewards for those who provide such useful information.
DCOP Boateng said between October 17 and November 1 this year, six accidents involving tricycle users and motor bicycle riders were recorded at Dormaa-Ahenkro.
He called for the general public to help in the spread of the message about road safety and advised young boys below 18years not to ride motorbikes and tricycles because they were not permitted under the law to do so.
The youth above 18 years too must be disciplined and desist from riding under the influence of hard liquors and other harmful drugs such as tramadol, DCOP Boateng said.
DCOP Mr. Samuel Monney on behalf of the Inspector General of Police Mr. James Oppong Boanuh officially cut the tape to inaugurate the new Office Building.
