The association of police wives has disclosed that their husbands are living under poor conditions.
They said their husbands were wearing faded uniforms, torn boots, which according to them was very embarrassing to the wives.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Mynewsgh.com.
The revelation was reportedly made by one of the wives, Comfort Tsumedzor, the president of the police wives association.
She further called on the government to rise to the occasion and deal with the situation decisively.
“I am pleading with the government to help get them new uniforms and other logistics that will improve in the discharge of their professional duties. It is embarrassing to see our husbands wear tattered uniforms and boots. You can see the uniforms looking very faded on them to the extent we sympathize with them”, she said during the police week celebration in Cape Coast.
Mrs. Comfort Tsumedzor observed that being a policeman these days was a herculean task underscoring the need for them to be properly catered for in order to boost their morale in the discharge of their duties of protecting lives and property.
She also touched on another challenge they faced which was accommodation.
Comfort said there was serious congestion in the police barracks.
“We are share single and sometimes two small rooms with our families and our husbands are unable to get enough rest since the kids are always around and playing. This affects them emotionally and physically because they are unable to regain their lost strength before they resume work the next day”, she decried.
She then appealed to the service to consider erecting structures on large tracts of land rather than allowing police personnel to rent rooms among the communities.
