Accident Investigators and Prosecutors Trained on GhanaPost GPS App

The Ghana Post Company Limited, operators of the Ghana Post GPS App, has organised a day’s training programme on how to use the Ghana Post GPS App for accident investigators and prosecutors under the Accra Regional Command of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD).

The training was aimed at equipping the particuipants with knowledge on the use of the GhanaPost GPS app to accurately locate accident scenes and also report on such incidents.

GhanaPostGPS is Ghana’s official digital property addressing system which covers every inch of the country and ensures that all locations in the country are addressed.

The ‘home-grown’ location-based app provides the most effective means of addressing every location.

The app was launched on October 18, 2017, by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to provide accurate data for planning and service delivery for service providers and ultimately, make it easy to identify and find locations, as well as boost emergency service delivery.

The Corporate Communications Manager of Ghana Post Company, Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe, said the training was intended to help accident investigators and prosecutors to easily identify locations of accident scenes and offer the needed assistance to victims.

She said often times, accident investigators and prosecutors find it difficult locating accident scene and also informing victims’ relatives about it, pointing out that with the use of the Ghana Post GPS App, the officers will be able to accurately give location details to accident victims’ relatives as well as having accurate and detailed reports on accidents.

Ms Osisiadan-Bekoe, therefore, entreated the participants as well as Ghanaians to download the app to enable them to give right directions for emergency services during distress times.

The programme was attended by both senior and junior officers of the service, including the Commanding Officer of the Central MTTD, Accra, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Mr Anderson Fosu-Ackaah.

For his part, ACP Fosu-Ackaah said “capacity building enhances professionalism, integrity and efficiency,” and added that “training and retraining are very key in the current policy direction of the police administration, hence the current training of accident investigators and prosecutors within the Accra Region.”

He, therefore, urged the participants to take the training seriously, saying “you are representing your respective stations and must, therefore, take this course seriously in order to go back and impact knowledge acquired.”
