More than hundred cops serving under the Ghana Police Service have been dismissed by the Police Administration following various offences committed by them.
The development underlines the enforcement of the Police zero tolerance for corruption and related malpractices, as well as indiscipline in the force as it continues to professionalize the Police force.
The Public Relations Officer,(PRO) of the Ghana Police Service, Supt. Cephas Arthur has explained to the media that,the affected officers were implicated in acts of corruption and other offences, including robbery.
“There are many reasons,” Cephas Arthur said “They were fired by the Police Administration for acts of indiscipline under police disciplinary code of conduct, extortion, bad treatment to members of the public and etc.”
About 105 were expelled from the Police Service, including various ranks, Mr Cephas Arthur said, indicating that those at the lower ranks were the worst culprits affected by the disciplinary actions.
The recent dismissals are only offences committed by the affected cops in 2016, the Police PRO noted, adding that there would be “no mercy” for corrupt officers in the police service, as the Police shall only move with clean elements going forward.
