Public Education | Advice

  • Don’t rely on the document you are given by the Land Lord.
  • Engage a competent surveyor, if possible from the survey Department to survey the land and prepare a site plan for you.
  • Conduct a search at both the Lands Commission Secretariat and Land Registration Division to see the status of it.
  • If it reveals the name of the Land Lord granting the land to you, then you can go ahead to acquire it.
  • Do not make any payment to any Landlord until the necessary checks on the land are completed and you are convinced it is a genuine offer.
  • Ensure that documents covering the land you purchase are immediately transferred into your name.
  • Do not buy lands demarcated for government or municipal projects.
  • Do not buy lands that are not covered by documents.

Our Fallen Heroes

Our Heroes

Our Heroes

Lance Corporal Robert Ackah

It’s not always easy or “convenient” being a police officer, but it is a noble calling. And the Ghana is fortunate that the members of our police service are all honourable men and women, dedicated to serving and protecting the citizens of our community. They sacrifice of their time, their talents….and sometimes their very own lives.
On this page we honour several brave and dedicated men from the Ghana Police Service: men and women who – in dangerous situations – were reaching out to help those in need of their services and ultimately paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is with great honor that we dedicate this section to them – to let their families know that who they were, and what they stood for, remains steadfast in our hearts and our minds. We are proud to call them our brothers and sisters. We will be forever thankful that they chose to serve their country.
