He also explained that the strategy is part of part of measures to encourage officers to deliver their best in their line of duty.
During his lecture, he said " We have provisionalize the environment to the level that when you ( an officer) die in line of duty with all the courtesy that we give, we also open the opportunity for a child of yours or a brother who is qualified to be recruited to take your place" .
He also added , " The relative will continue the works that you couldn't finish because of your untimely death in line of duty. So it will be a way of pacifying the family for their loss" .
He also explained that this objective is to transform the Police Service into an efficient one.
According to the IGP, there are numerous challenges facing the service but these challenges won't deter him from achieving that goal .
At the end he also encouraged that Ghanaians should constructively criticize the police but not destructively to help not demoralize the morale of the officers.
