The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Paul Tawiah Quaye, has called on personnel of the Ghana Police Service to enter the New Year with a resolution to perform their duties better than they did in 2009.
In a New Year message to the personnel, Mr Quaye urged them to perform their duties diligently without tainting the image of the service through bribery, corruption and other unprofessional behavior. He noted that in spite of the achievements of the service, it was still perceived as being the most corrupt in the country.
“Whether that is perceived or real, there is the urgent need to raise our image positively by exhibiting high professional conduct. Lapses that occasioned the performance of our duties at times should become a thing of the past. Allegations of corruption should be disproved in the coming year,” he said.
Mr Quaye need that the good works of the personnel throughout the country in 2009, especially the fight against armed robbery, had been observed by admirers and critics alike.
He, therefore, urged the personnel to keep up the dedicated services and work harder in the coming year. “All and sundry should consider themselves the Inspector-General of Police in their little corners where they have been working and work harder to earn a good reputation and redeem the image of the service,” he added.
The IGP said the Police Administration was doing everything possible to solve the accommodation problem confronting the service, saying that the government had approved the budget of the police for the completion of a number of unfinished building projects.
