IGP charges police to protect Ghanaians

IGP (COP) John Kudalor

The Inspector General of Police, COP John Kudalor, has charged all police officers to ensure the safety of Ghanaians. He was speaking at the commissioning of a modern police post built to offer security  to parliament.

Speaking at the commissioning of a modern police post built to offer security  to parliament, COP Kudalor said ensuring the safety of the people is a fulfillment of the social contract officers have with Ghanaians.

 “The good people of this country are expecting us to fulfill our part of the contract by ensuring the safety and security of all. Officers must therefore strive hard to be good and effective leaders who will use knowledge, expertise, skills and networks to change society,” he stated.

“Policing is a shared responsibility, hence the need for all of us to assist in one way or another to peacefully coexist and perform our duty.”

The charge follows perceived heightened tensions especially as the general elections draws near with the call for peace and stability being the leading advocacy of all political stakeholders.
