The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, has released photos of how police personnel should be dressed for the upcoming December polls.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Peacefmonline, the IGP warned police personnel not to flout the directive or else they were going to face disciplinary actions.
The IGP went on to add that no unpermitted clothing would be allowed for officers on election duties on December 7.
The IGP in a statement indicated that he had also directed that no officer of the law must wear a beard, except those with peculiar medical conditions.
Officers of the Criminal Investigations and Police Intelligence Departments (CID and PID) will wear approved overt and covert uniforms with their ID cards displayed for identification.
The directives from the IGP follow public enquiries on the police uniforms to be used for this year's election.
"In view of public enquiries on the police uniforms to be used for this year's Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, the Inspector-General of Police Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh has directed that all Police Officers wear the traditional police uniforms which are in the colours of blue-black, black and police camouflage; be it office or operational wear with the appropriate headgear for police duties.
Plain clothed officers of the Criminal Investigations and Police Intelligence Departments (CID and PID) will, however, wear their approved overt and covert uniforms with their ID cards readily available for identification", the statement read
The public is, therefore, to note that any officer of the law who wears any unpermitted clothing for election duties would be engaging in professional misconduct, which is subject to disciplinary proceedings.
