The study examined how drug and human trafficking affect children's development and national security in Ghana's Accra Metropolitan Assembly. The study said crime is ubiquitous. The consequence is that the surge in drug and human trafficking in the Accra Metropolitan Assembly threatens national security and development and harms children in the metropolis. The study used rational choice and routine activity theories to examine how drug and human trafficking affect child development and national security. 15 security officials were stratified and selected for the interpretive qualitative study. The study findings were analyzed and presented using thematic analysis to draw appropriate conclusions. The results demonstrated high drug and human trafficking throughout the metropolis, especially in fishing areas. Human trafficking leads to child labor and street children, which lead to armed organizations. The study found that drug and human trafficking lead to an infusion of weaponry into the country, which could create militant groups that destabilize the country. Security agencies should increase human and drug trafficking education through radio and social media. Social media would instantly share drug and human trafficking information so individuals could help fix it.
