The inspector general of police (IGP) has warned police personnel against taking partisan sides ahead of the December 7 elections.
John Kudalor has warned that his administration will not hesitate to punish any officer whose action or inaction brings the name of the Service into disrepute.
“The Police administration affirms the dispensation of its duties before, during and after the elections. Personnel are therefore warned from taking partisan positions in the discharge of their duties. Anyone found culpable will be severely punished by the Police administration. Professionalism must and should be our watch-word always,” he stated during a tour of the Volta region.
His comments come days after the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, admonished the Police Service to work for the country, putting the needs of the country first above any political party.
