As part of its stakeholder engagement programme, the Ghana Police Service on Wednesday, 3 November 2021, met with some leaders of civil society organisations at the national police headquarters in Accra.

The meeting was to afford the police administration the opportunity to listen to the concerns of civil society groups about policing in the country.

The discussions focused on the shortcomings of the police institution and other challenges affecting policing in Ghana.

The issues discussed included the need for enhanced community engagement, civility of the police, human rights issues in policing, election security, bribery and corruption.

Other were the selective application of the law, abuse of traffic regulations by drivers of V8 vehicles and motorbike riders, as well as police-military operations; and the conduct of demonstrations.

The meeting was chaired by the Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare and moderated by Prof Kwasi Aning.

Also present were members of the police management board and some other senior police officers.

In his closing remarks, the Inspector-General of Police emphasised the need for the police and civil society organisations to work together toward the peace of the country.

He called on them to speak up on issues affecting the security of the country and to offer constructive criticism of the police.

Dr Dampare also gave the assurance that the police administration was focused and determined to deliver.
