The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has called for the strengthening of working relations among institutions to achieve the desired results.
He added that working together as institutions would help each of them achieve their mandate because no single individual or institution could achieve a set goal, unless they work together as a team.
The IGP said this on Monday when the Executive Director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Commissioner of Police (COP), Maame Yaa Tiwaah Addo-Danquah, paid a courtesy call on him in Accra on Monday.
The two later held a close-door discussion believed to centre on strengthening the existing relationship between the two institutions during the visit.
The IGP assured COP Addo-Danquah of the Ghana Police Service’s readiness to assist the Office in any endeavour.
She was accompanied by Deputy Executive Director Operations, Nana Antwi and Deputy Executive Director Intelligence and monitoring, Mrs Aba Jacqueline Opoku, both of EOCO.
COP Addo-Danquah, on her part, stated that the support received from the Ghana Police Service over the years could not be understated.
According to her, the collaboration helped to ease workload and speed up investigations.
She expressed appreciation for the support the Ghana Police Service had given to her Office over the years, especially in undertaking its operational activities.
Some of the members of the Police management board present were the Director-General of Technical, COP Mr George Alex Mensah, and Director-General of the National Patrols, Visibility Department, COP Paul Manly Awini, DCOP Habiba Twumasi-Sarpong, Director General Welfare and DCOP Kwesi Ofori, Director General Police Public Affairs.
