Dampare: Our Informants Are On A “Payroll”

The Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akufo Dampare has disclosed police informants are making thousands of cedis out of “authentic” clues to the police service.

At a lecture on Policing at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), he noted that there is a pool of persons acting as informants to the Ghana Police Service and on a “payroll”.

Dampare said the service has a “cultivation of informants across the country”.

On how it worked, he explained when an informant’s information is found to be authentic through operationalisation, the informant is paid between GHc1000 and GHC50,000.

“Because that is how we are committed to protecting you. If I’m to tell you the people on that payroll, maybe you will take it as a second job. These are all the things we are doing to keep you safe”, he justified.

The IGP said this forms part of the Scientific Intelligence-led policing strategy the Service has adopted in fighting crimes in society.
