The Director-General of the Ghana Police Service’s Public Affairs Directorate, Kwasi Ofori, has said that the new police administration led by Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, is committed to promoting law enforcement.
According to Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kwesi Ofori, the already momentum being felt under the helm of Dr. Dampare aims at ensuring Ghana becomes a law abiding country.
He told Kofi Adoma Nwanwani on Anopa Bofoɔ morning show on Angel FM that one of the objective of the police administration is to end lawlessness, and thus promoting law enforcement to the highest level.
ACP Kwasi Ofori added that, the IGP is not just implementating law in the country but making conscious efforts to instill self-discipline among the citizenship.
When asked wether Dr. Akuffo Dampare has been ‘tamed’ to slow down on his policing style after his engagment with stakeholders and the general public in a friendly manner, the ACP swiftly responded it is “untrue”.
He reiterated that comparing IGP’s recent impelling force to when he first assumed office, the administration has improved but not relaxed as believed by many.
Stressing on the progression in policing under the new administration, ACP Kwasi Ofori highlighted their improvement after deployment of over 500 police personnel from the Concentration Training Camp (CTC), Huhunya, in the Eastern Region to the various communities.
To him, the move for the deployment is a sign of commitment to strengthen security in the country.
On this account, he is of the view that the consistent interception approach of policing would put away fear and panic as well combating crime activities before, during and after the 2021 Christmas festivities.
