LandMark Security Limited will undertake the youth in security service module in partnership with the
National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) under the Ministry of Manpower, Youth, and Employment.
This participatory initiative is important in terms of addressing a potential “youth unemployment problem”
by giving young individuals with uncertain career prospects something constructive to do.
The aim of this involvement is to function as a conduit to assist local communities in matters of community
safety and protection duties by collaborating with the Ghana Police Service within the local areas of operation.
This in our view has a broader goal of encouraging the public to appreciate itself as partners of the police in
controlling and preventing crime in local communities within Ghana.
The specific duties will be to conduct community patrols and sensitization of local communities about their
security needs and expectations. The geographic extent of such operations will not be limited to the urban
metropolitan centers and therefore the activities will directly affect other instances of criminality,
including neighborhood and highway robbery, mob justice, and other non-traffic offences.
With the expertise in GIS/GPS technologies, LandMark Security would support, build capacity and promote other
aspect of the module by working with the Ghana police service crime unit to geocode all crime scenes with
related attributes for crime analysis and forecasting. Such data will b used to map out areas (Hotspots) with
high degree of occurrence or with the likelihood of crime occurring to be proactive in crime preventions as
stated in the 2010 budget statement.
