A security Expert, Adib Saani has welcomed the proposal by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akufo Dampare that police officers who die in the line of duty would be replaced with a relative.

Speaking to A1 Radio on “Reporter’s Visit,” Mr. Saani, said the IGP’s proposal is in the right direction that will go a long way to help the Ghana Police service.

The IGP, while delivering a lecture at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on Thursday, August 11, as part of measures to pacify officers who die in the line of duty, said their relatives will be given the opportunity to replace them in the Ghana Police Service.

Mr. Adib, said this would indeed bring hard work into the Ghana Police service. According to the security Expert, if the IGP proposal is adopted and implemented, it should be managed well.

“It is only a good thing, it is only moral that families are given closure when anything happens to their loved ones because they are serving the country. It would send the right signal to serving officers who work delightedly and with all their hearts, knowing full well that if anything happens to them, their families will be well taken care of.”

“It doesn’t mean that authentically you would become qualified, no! you will still have to merit it, just you will be given attention but you have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that, yes indeed you merit it. This is not straight jacket as many think. I think that would help. I think this is welcoming but I hope that it is not mismanaged and in the end, we would have wrong people benefit from it,” he said.

The Security Expert Mr. Adib also noted that it is important that if the IGP proposal is to go through, there should be proper regulations in order not to have people pretending to be relatives of officers who die.
