Top police officer earns high praise after refusing to use siren to 'jump' traffic

There have been various announcements concerning the indiscriminate use of sirens on service vehicles as well as vehicles belonging to politicians.

Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

Often times, those who drive in these official vehicles abuse their offices by using the sirens on the vehicles to jump traffic and also use unapproved routes.

A Facebook user, Ernest Sanyare has commended the occupant of a police service vehicle with Registration number GP-9 for being a rare type of police officer.

It is believed that the occupant of the vehicle is a senior police officer.

According to Ernest, he first spotted the vehicle on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, patiently following the congested early morning traffic right from in front of Roka International School at Fise area until after Ofankor when he took a different direction while he continued towards Achimota.

He added that, for some strange reason, he followed the same vehicle after work the same day from John Teye school to Fise Junction after the U-turn.

Ernest said unlike most police vehicles that abuse the police siren to jump traffic congestion, this particular unique officer was different.

He said at least for the period that he drove behind him in the rush hours of the morning and evening alike, he did nothing of that sort.

Ernest however, praised the occupant of Police vehicle with registration number GP-9.

He hoped that his behavior will endure for long while and become a catalyst to reform other colleagues who abuse the police siren just to stay ahead in traffic and not for a necessary sanctioned policing activity.
