He also said that another challenge was that sometimes information was relayed to the PR department in good time.

Again, there was the failure of some of the departments within the service to brief the PR team on matters in time. You occasionally would hear matters relating to the Police Service in the media before they even came to us at the PR department. That was a challenge.” he said.

According to a memo signed by the current Inspector General of Police, Mr. David Asante-Apeatu, the police service's veteran PR man will be heading the Ghana Police Services East Legon District command come June 12th. His deputy, DSP Sheila Abayie Buckman, will now take up the mantel of Director of Public Affairs for the Ghana Police Service.
