Ghana Police

  • The Member of Parliament for Builsa North Constituency and former Deputy Interior Minister, Hon. James Agalga, has called for the retooling of the Ghana Police Service to enhance their mobillity.

  • The current Ghanaian media landscape is politically polarised and heavily commercialised.

    If there is a media platform that is constantly on the agenda of discrediting the police service and their efforts at maintaining law and order in this country, it is none other than Multimedia and its affiliate radio and TV stations.

  • President Akufo-Addo described the incident as unfortunate, stressing that “Police men are meant to protect citizens, and not to assault citizens.”

    President Akufo-Addo says he supports the sanctions meted out against the L/Cpl Godzi Frederick Amanor, the police officer who was seen in a video brutalizing a woman at the Midland Savings and Loans.

  • Out of the figure, four personnel committed suicide through the use of their riffles and hanging, the newspaper published in its Friday January 18, 2019 edition.

     About 108 police personnel were diagnosed of different types of mental health problems last year due to stress.

  • "Congratulations to all the newly promoted Officers including Superintendent Mrs Shiella Kessie Abayie-Buckman, the Director of Public Affairs".

  • The type of occupational stress experienced by personnel is just unimaginable. People go on duty tours for 7 days (168) hours in environments where even places of convenience aren’t available.

     Written By Cherry Nanewortor - It’s such a sad occurrence. Cases such as this, l am afraid to say will continue if our attitude towards mental health remain largely the same. Too much system induced stressors without due assessment of their impact and consequences on personnel. 

  • By this time it was clear all three were disgruntled with the situation they found themselves in but they were far from finished. Out of the blue one of them quipped, “Recently there was a call within the service for people who wanted to work with the MTTU. Even those in charge of arms in my office left." In a trance, I exclaimed really? Then another continued, "Nobody wants to die. These are the reasons everyone wants to work with the trotro drivers; it is safer and more rewarding too.”

    Raymond Chandler in The Lady in the Lake argued, “Police business is a hell of a problem. It’s a good deal like politics. It asks for the highest type of men, and there’s nothing in it to attract the highest type of men. So we have to work with what we get...”

  • Not even the president of Ghana can give express instructions for a police officer to be dismissed arbitrarily and unilaterally from the police service. That can never happen in this democratic dispensation of ours and under the 1992 republican constitution of Ghana.

    Police service enquiries are real and critical, so police officers billed for service enquiry must also be very real and critical in all situations pertaining to service enquiries. One should not leave things to chance, when it comes to service enquiries because it is a battle for survival in the police, so it's got to be approached with all the seriousness it deserves.

  • Unfortunately, the police service is such that no one holds leaders accountable whether they are doing well in their respective capacities or not. Whether an IGP delivers on his mandate or not, ...

    Today is the last day of the year 2018, and we need to do some serious retrospections and introspections as a police service, as the year gradually rolls away in some hours to come. A lot happened in our lives as police officers, and as an organization, during the year, so we need to critically examine our lives and renew our spirits going forward.

  • Crime in the modern day is fought with the use of technology, modern resources (personnel and equipment) and data and not through ‘superhero’ fiction images. These images were available and seen, but criminals in the Ashanti Region somewhat had the freedom and boldness to operate. The point I am making is that, our current threats cannot be solved by any single individual,...

  • Ghana to deploy police/military patrol teams to combat growing violent crimes

  • Ghanaians have never jubilated when people other than the police are caught up in bad situations. And I ask, why is the police treated cruelly different in similar situations???

    Written By Baaba Nancy - The hypocrisy of Ghanaians is sickening. And for some strange reasons, Ghanaians rejoice when police is in trouble but go dead silent when policemen are injured and even die in line of duty protecting the same Ghanaians.
