IGP call for attitudinal change in the Police Service

The current IGP, Dr. George Akufo Dampare of the Ghana Police Service, has called for a change in attitude in the police service over what he described as a disrespectful and inhumane attitude towards the public.

According to him, the public had raised concerns about some police personnel maltreating and disrespecting the vulnerable in the society, even though, the police were to be recognized, as servants of the public.

The IGP made the call during an interaction with personnel at the Tongu Police Divisional Headquarters at Sogakope in the Volta Region with some members of the Police Management Board (POMAB).

The IGP also advised the Service, to always have their identity cards and names embedded on their uniforms for easy identification.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, Wednesday, held two important stakeholder meetings with the Vehicle And Asset Dealers Union of Ghana, and the Driver Unions in Accra.

At the meeting, the drivers requested routine patrols on the highways, the arrest of indiscipline drivers, and the installation of more CCTV cameras to monitor the movements of drivers.

They also bemoaned the conduct of some police officers on the major highways, the installation of unapproved headlamps, and the untimely towing of some broken stationary vehicles.
