He said the police service has so far represented the nation very well in various capacities in the stabilisation of peace in the world.

According to him, many Ghanaian police officers continue to serve diligently in troubled countries across the world.

In a region and continent claimed by several incidents of strife, our police have seen the ravages of war and helped to stabilise the peace,” President Akufo-Addo said.

“They have served in international peacekeeping operations in just about every troubled spot in the world, in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, Namibia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Georgia and Iraq.

“Currently our officers from the Ghana Police Service are providing peacekeeping duties in both Sudan and South Sudan as well as in Somalia and the Central African Republic."

He then went on to give Chief Superintendent Osei a mention, for becoming the first Ghanaian female to ever win the UN Female Police Officer of the year award.
