- The police service says it will be using the NPP manifesto to achieve its targets
- The NPP manifesto aims to make the police service part of the top 10 in the world
It has emerged that the police service could be operating along the lines of the very manifesto which led the New Patriotic Party into power in the 2016 elections.
In fact, the police service says it fully supports the transformation agenda being churned by the NPP administration.
It is against this back drop that the police say they have set for themselves a four year agenda to ensure that they become part of the world’s ten most respected police service in the world.
What this means is that the police service will be employing new strategies to make sure that their services are highly professional and also ensure that each and every Ghanaian stays safe.
According to the head of transformation unit at the police service, Superintendent Dr. Benjamin Agodzo, the police will definitely employ the targets of the NPP manifesto to ensure that they reach this goal of theirs.
He says; “the government in power now in their manifesto stated 13 strategic means by which they want to develop the Ghana police service, so we used that as a reference point to say yes, they are using this and with your commitment to it, we will transform the police service”.
The resolve by the police raises concerns over their independence and resolve to act not within the influence of government especially in the wake of severe security threats posed the country in the likes of political vigilantism, mob justice and also threats of terror.
