IGP: Competent relatives will take the position of fallen police officers. Featured
12 August 2022
According to Inspector-General of Police Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, suitable relatives will now be hired into the service to make up for the loss of a police officer who dies in the line of duty.
The IGP claims that the initiative is only one of many steps the Police Service's top brass is doing to reward officers for their greatest efforts. The IGP stated during a public lecture at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on Thursday that "we have put new measures in place to ensure that a relative of the deceased officer who is qualified is recruited into the service as part of efforts to urge our officers to do their best in protecting the public." The IGP stated that his goal is to make the Police the most effective institution in the nation despite the difficulties they encounter in his speech on the topic "The changing face of police in Ghana: expectations and the role of the university community." "We want a police force that is operated by, for, and for the people. We want to transform the service into the best organization in the nation and a model for the rest of the world. Additionally, Dr. Dampare urged the people to criticize the police, but to do so constructively rather than destructively, as such criticisms might kill the officers' morale. Please be constructive in your criticism of us so as not to demoralize the service members.
