Ghana Police Service have introduced Police shuttle services.

The new Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare has introduced Police shuttle services.

In a post sighted by on the official Facebook page of the Ghana Police Service, state that the programme has been implemented in 15 out of the 16 operational regions.

Buses have, therefore, been deployed on designated routes with pick-up and drop off points to ensure the safe and easy transportation of personnel, as well as to ensure that personnel who carry weapons for duty, do so under safe conditions.

The general public had expressed concern about the practice of Ghana Police personnel boarding commercial vehicles (taxi,trotro) with weapons and the possible danger posed to other occupants of these vehicles.

Also Uniformed officers struggling to get onboard vehicles during the rush hour is not good for morale in the service and does not inspire public confidence in the police.

It's also good to note that (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare earlier on Thursday, August 12, 2021 launched the Horse Patrol operations at the National Joint Operations Headquarters-Accra. The launch, was also part of efforts to fight crime and method of crime prevention and detection.
