Police Reacted To The Report That Says They Are The Most Corrupt Institution In Ghana

The inspector General of police George Akuffo Dampare has reacted to the recent report of the survey conducted by the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

The report ranked the Ghana Police Service as the most corrupt institution in the country by taking a bribe of 53.2%.

George Akuffo Dampare however challenges the methodology used in conducting the research saying that it has put an unfair focus on the police.

“Our discomfort, therefore, is the use of selective ranking methodology to project the outcomes in a manner that puts an unfair focus on the Police Service with all the others in your corruption index escaping public scrutiny.” the statement read.

He also said that the report is stereotyping based on respondents' choices and it will be good if the researchers factor in the validity of their findings.

“This stereotype may easily influence respondent choices and it is, therefore, fair to expect that you factor it in assessing the validity of your findings,” the statement added.

They also spelled out that most of the public institutions including CHRAJ and Ghana Statistical Service were not part of the research.
