Police Service is being transformed - IGP 2/22/2007
Koforidua, Feb. 21, GNA - Mr Patrick Kwarteng Acheampong, Inspector General of Police (IGP) on Tuesday said plans were far advanced to transform the Ghana Police Service to control crime in the country. The plans include reformation in the infrastructure, communication systems, logistics and human resource development.

Mr Acheampong announced this in an address read on his behalf by Mrs Elizabeth Mills-Robertson, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Administration) at the opening session of a two-week basic Detective and Domestic Violence training for 100 Police Officers in the Eastern Region at Koforidua.

He noted that without a well trained, disciplined and motivated police personnel, no amount of logistics would be enough to transform the service to the standard being envisaged by the Police administration.

Mr Acheampong said it was in line with the vision of the Police administration that comprehensive in-service training programmes were being organised for police detectives throughout the country, after a successful pilot programme at Pwalugu in the Upper East Region. The IGP assured Ghanaians that the Ghana Police Service was ready to discharge its mandate under the constitution to protect life and property.

Mr Acheampong expressed appreciation to Mr Gordon Wetherell, British High Commissioner to Ghana, for sponsoring the training and his contribution to enhance image of the service.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr Felix Asare-Darko, Eastern Regional Police Commander commended the Police administration for including the region in the programme to help improve performance of police personnel.

Mr Yaw Barimah, Eastern Regional Minster, said the police had the responsibility to maintain the enviable record of the country being a safe haven within the West Africa sub-region. He noted that the training would enhance police-public relations in the region and the country.
