IGP Asks Men To Be Professional In Discharge Of Duty

igp_alhassanThe  Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, has asked personnel of the Service to exhibit professionalism in the discharge of their duties and operate strictly within the confines of their regulations.

“Do not be complacent. Rather, be prepared to meet all challenges that would arise in the performance of your constitutional duties,” he said.

Mr. Alhassan made the call here on Saturday, during the deployment of 950 Police personnel to various service posts within the Tema Metropolis to maintain law and order before, during and after the Supreme Court verdict.

Mr. Alhassan said “What is expected of us is utmost professionalism both on duty and off duty so as to avoid any negative perception about us”.

He pointed out that the primary objective of the Police Service was law enforcement and therefore, entreated personnel not to depart from the ethics of their profession, stressing that “you should refrain from such acts that would tend to abuse the rights of the citizenry.”

The 950-member team comprised the Rapid Deployment Force, Special Weapon and Ammunitions Team, Plain Cloth Persons, Visibility Patrol and the Reserved Team who would be deployed  in the districts of Tema Newtown, Prampram, Sakumono, Kpone, Tema Communities 1 and 11, Dodowa, Ada and the Ashaiman Municipality.

The Director-General of Operations, COP John Kudalor, advised them to be neutral, professional and exhibit a lot of integrity in the performance of their duties.

The Tema Regional Police Commander, DCOP Maxwel Atingane, for his part, said his outfit had put measures in place to monitor flash points where chaos could erupt. - Godfred Blay Gibbah & Kennedy Afedzi, Tema
