Members of the Parliamentary Committee on Defense and Interior are hopeful the strategic plans of government will quell the rate of crime in the country.
The revelation was made by minority spokesperson on the committee, James Agalga who is the Member of Parliament for Builsa North constituency, Upper East region.
The Interior Minister Ambrose Dery, Inspector General of Police Asante Apeatu and other top officials of the police service were invited to Parliament to engage the Defense and Interior committee of the House on the security situation in the country.

After a marathon meeting with the committee, Mr. Agalga who speaks for the minority National Democratic Congress (NDC) says he is hopeful the authorities have the security situation under control.
The police are resolute in apprehending the perpetrators of Sunday’s attack.
A GH¢15,000 bounty has also been placed on the escapees by the police department.
Ambrose Dery told journalists after the meeting that the police surely can do better but he reiterated that Ghanaians are safe and the situation is not out of hand.
