Indeed, she is not the first female COP to have reached the rank of a Commissioner, the acme, as long as police ranks are concerned as some put it. Whatever it is, the name of rtd COP/Ms Rose Bio -Atinga will forever remain in the memory of personnel of her time as well as the history of GH GPS.
One major decision she took, as D -G Admin, that created some sort of bad blood between her and her junior comrades, Policewomen [PWs] particularly was cancellation of application to join husband by PWs, a decision that was the best at the time.
Why because, all the applications to join husbands at the time were that to join husbands in Accra, Kumasi, and the big cities, especially, down south the nation Ghana, thus, creating personnel deficit up north and in the hinterlands. Certainly, you can't be wiser than auntie Rose. She took some strong decisions while she was D - G, Admin that we can remember her for.
She pulled out together with other high ranking officers. The news of her retirement was greeted with mixed feelings within the police fraternity; those who rejoiced, those who grieved, and few who consider it none of their business.
She has, in fact, rendered her service as a serving COP, both to the service and country Ghana. She pulled out after 29 years of dedicated service. May God grant her good health as she bowed out.
