The Ashanti Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr Nathan Kofi Boakye, has asked the public to desist from associating the service with political colours.
He said the men and women of the service were apolitical and worked according to the laws of the land and anyone found to have fallen foul of the law was dealt with accordingly.
According to him, the Ghana Police Service was not affiliated to any political party so any policeman who identified himself with a political party was not fit to wear the uniform.
Mr Boakye, who was speaking at the inauguration of a police station at Asawase in the Asokore/Mampong municipality last Monday, also warned the public to stop attacking police stations to free suspected criminals.
According to the regional commander, if anyone took the law into his or her hands, the police would go by the law and ensure that the person was dealt with.
“The Ghana Police Service does not discriminate; irrespective of your ethnicity, when you fall foul of the law, you will be dealt with according to the law," he added.
Mr Boakye further advised the personnel to be professional in the discharge of their duties and not to use their uniform to intimidate the public.
He commended the Municipal Chief Executive of Asokore Mampong, Mr Nurudeen Hamidan, for supporting the police.
The police station project was a collaboration between the Member of Parliament for Asawase, Alhaji Muntaka Murabak and the municipa.
