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.
a. COMMUNITY UNREST
There is no unrest in the various communities in the District as regards creed, sex, tribe, ethnic or political affiliations. Our communities co-exist in peace with one another.
b. CHIEFTAINCY UNREST
Despite various protracted chieftaincy situations in the District, none has resulted into any violent outrage threatening life and property. Little eruptions eminent at Dompoase and Dasubemadwen in the District have been nipped in the bud due to the pragmatic and timely measures undertaken by the District Security Committee (D.S.C).
c. 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 as well as the stretch of the bad nature of the road at Kyeaboso. Unfortunately, Police strength in the district is low and therefore relies on the adjoining Districtities and districts for reinforcement to be able to combat highway robberies.
d. 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; Fumso, Akrokerri, Dompoase, Aboabo, Asokwa, Bodwesango and Anhwiaso 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.
