Ghanaians have been urged to report the misconduct of any police personnel to the Police Intelligence and Professional Stand Unit (PIPS). This would help enforce discipline and promote justice towards quality service delivery in the country.The Director in charge of Training of the Ghana Police Service, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Boakye made the call at a passing-out ceremony of 194 Police recruits at the Central Regional Police Training School in Winneba last Saturday.
The recruits made up of 87 females and 107 males have undergone six months successful training in basic police training course at the school.
DCOP Boakye said the police are an organisation that thrives on discipline adding that they have internal mechanisms to deal effectively with police misconducts and weed out bad nuts whose act of omission could bring image of the service into disrepute.
He said as peace officers, they should know that they are not above the law of the land and that when each of them violates the law he or she does not only put himself into trouble but disgraces the police administration and which reduce public confidence.
DCOP Boakye advised them to remain calm, resolute and never in any way lose their temper but persevere even in the face of scorn or ridicule, adding that they should be fair, firm and eschew negative tendencies when executing their duties.
“You are to assist achieve the vision of the service which is to be a world class police service capable of delivering planned, democratic and protective service up to standards of international best practice”.
