As part of efforts by the Police Administration to restructure the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD), more than 300 police personnel have been registered to be trained in motor traffic duties.

The pilot programme, which is underway in Accra, would be replicated in the regions.

The Director-General of the MTTD, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Maxwell Sakipasgo Atingane, disclosed these last Saturday in Accra during a registration exercise for police personnel who have opted to join the MTTD.

The police personnel will go through interview, selection and training before deployment.

The Director-General said the image of the Police Service was sinking and needed strategic measures to address to win back the confidence of the public.

DCOP Atingane said the MTTD was the eye of the Police Service, since they were always in contact with the public, and any negative thing they do could adversely affect the image of the Service.

He advised personnel on traffic duties to be professional, devoid of any activities that would tarnish the image of the Service.

“You must enforce and process offenders for court to help change the perception of the public about the police,” he added

DCOP Atingane said the public would also be trained to know their rights and responsibility regarding traffic issues in the country, assuring them of the service’ continuous efforts in ensuring that lives and properties were saved at all times.
