Twenty-nine police personnel, including a female were interdicted by the Police Administration within the first eight months of the year for various violations of the rules and regulations of the service.
They are reported to have been involved in police enlistment fraud, unlawful possession of narcotics, failing to perform their duties properly, indiscriminate firing of firearms, absence from duty without permission and sexual-related offences.
The affected officers were a Chief inspector, Sergeant, two, Corporal, seven, Lance Corporal and nine Constables. The Director-General of the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) David Nenyi Ampah-Bennin told The Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday that out of the 29 personnel two were exempted.
He said the Police Administration would not condone and connive with any act of lawlessness which did not conform to the ethics of the profession. “the Police Administration would not shield any police officer who indulges in any misconduct,” DCOP Ampah-Bennin warned.
DCOP Ampah-Bennin said some of the officers were either jailed or dismissed. He said the police administration as part of efforts to weed out the bad nuts in the service had tasked all district commanders to step up their supervisory roles to ensure that their personnel performed their duties in accordance with the laid down regulations
