The Inspector-General of Police has advised officers against the extortion of bribes at checkpoints.
Ever since George Akuffo Dampare became Ghana's Acting IGP, he visited several police patrol stations to motivate police officers.
He wants police officers not to accept bribes from people, saying it will never change their lives.
"Let's shame anybody who thinks that the Police officer cannot stop taking favors that are 100 Ghana, let's shame them, even if someone wants to give you a gift, tell the person that it is enough because that gift cannot transform your life. What can transform your life is the blessings of God," Dr. Dampare said.
He has aso asked police officers to be gentle and polite at checkpoints, saying; "that is how we gain back the love and trust of the public".
