Police should be the primary recipient of CCTV footage of criminal activities – Police cautions public

The Ghana Police Service (GPS) has advised the public to directly share Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) footage of criminal activities with the service rather than posting it on social media.

The GPS believes that this collaborative approach will enhance its investigative efforts and contribute to the swift apprehension of perpetrators, ensuring that they are not left at large.

In an interview on Face to Face on Citi TV Tuesday, ACP Grace Ansah-Akrofi, the Director of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service, emphasized the mutual benefits of such a strategy.

She highlighted that sharing CCTV footage directly with the police would expedite the investigative process and enhance the chances of bringing perpetrators to justice.

“In the event of any incident, instead of circulating the CCTV footage, they should first share it with the police to help in our investigations. Sometimes, putting it out there makes our investigative efforts difficult because if you are a suspect and you know that there is footage of you, it reveals your identity and the like.”

“So we want to entreat everybody; in case there is an incident, please share it with the police instead of putting it out there,” she said.
