Gov’t Promises More Support To The Police Service

The Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia at the graduation ceremony of 308 officers stated that the government will continue to provide the Police Service with the needed infrastructure, resources and motivation necessary to maintain law and order in its pursuit to become a world-class Police institution.

According to Dr Bawumia, additional infrastructure such as lecture/syndicate rooms, ultra-modern auditoriums, and residential accommodations are being put up at the Academy to contain the increasing number of officers admitted to the Academy.

He mentioned that regardless of the government budgetary constraints, it procured over 2000 motorbikes for the Police to strengthen its ongoing crime prevention/visibility operational initiatives within the framework of promoting democratic policing in the country. As a result, the Police are now present in some communities that previously were not easily accessible, and 3000 more will be added soon to cater for other affected communities.

In addition, 200 pick-up vehicles were procured for the Police to be used by Regional Formed Police Units (FPUs) soon to get deployed to about hundred and forty (140) locations across the country.

“These deployments are going to lead to a significant boost in the quality of policing on all highways across the country to enable everyone to go about their daily activities safely,” Bawumia added.

The vice president urged the public to support the Police and other security agencies to ensure national security.

“I would like to entreat every well-meaning Ghanaian to come on board so that together, we can sustain the gains made in ensuring a safe, peaceful and secure Ghana. Let us partner with the Police in our various communities to police us better. Passing on relevant information on crime and criminal activities to the Police is a gesture that can save lives,” he noted.

On Friday, November 25, 2022, three hundred and eight officers were appointed into the senior officer corps of the Ghana Police Service by the vice president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, on behalf of the President, Nana Akufo-Addo. The ceremony took place at the Ghana Police Academy in Tesano-Accra.
