Police officer praised for insisting a woman and her child do not sit in a passenger's seat

A police officer is the subject of praise on Facebook after it was revealed he insisted that a woman and her toddler not sit in the passenger's seat of a vehicle.

For any outsider, this insistence would look like standard practice. However, the law and the reality are not at par most of the time in Ghana.

Narrating the inspiring incident, Facebook user Peggy Jamela Saanuo captured: "This single act made me feel so much better and happy because most people In Ghana are yet to understand why they should get car seaters for kids and most importantly, why kids should be at the back of the car not the front."

At the time of going to press, the Facebook post had been shared more than one thousand times. That is a rarity on social media when it comes to commending personnel of Ghana's police force.

Saanuo began in praise on Facebook: "I don’t know this police man but I happened to experience something awesome he did few steps away. I was at a barrier stop at Doboro near Nsawam and at a search point he pulled a red car over. I was just like “oh here we go another driver about to probably tip a police officer.”

I was actually wrong, because all I saw was this police officer opening the front seat of the car and gently asked a lady with a toddler seated at the front seat to go sit at the back of the car.

He did the Lady the honor of opening both doors for her to secure the baby. The lady looked pissed but after she got seated and buckled the police officer let them go."

The Ghana Police Service is the subject of great frustration, disdain and even hatred by many sections of the Ghanaian public.

It is actually a good thing to see a law officer caught in good light for something even an averagely good police officer would not bother to act upon.
