389 police recruits have passed out at the Police Public Safety Training School located in Pwalugu, Upper East Region, on Wednesday 21st February. The passing out ceremony marked the conclusion of months of rigorous training aimed at equipping the recruits with the skills and knowledge necessary for effective policing and public safety.

The graduation ceremony, attended by senior police officials, dignitaries, and family members of the recruits, was a momentous occasion filled with pride and celebration. A speech by the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare indicates that the police administration has developed new training modules that blend theory with field practicals and simulation exercises.

“By this training regime, equal emphasis is now placed on-field training with practical attachments to gain hands-on experience under close supervision of senior officers. This is a departure from the past where emphasis was placed on the recruit’s knowledge of the laws they were expected to enforce when they pass out. Now, the focus is also placed on-field training activities such as riding, driving, swimming, crowd control, and incident and disaster management among others”

The Review Officer, COP Okyere-Darko Asumadu who read the statement on behalf of the IGP disclosed that the purpose of new reforms of training modules would position the personnel of the service to live up to the legitimate demands of the public for police services that address the security needs of the day.

COP Asumadu reminded the recruits of their duty to remain neutral as the 2024 general elections are approaching.

“As graduands, you should note that you are passing out at a time Ghana will be organizing general elections. Therefore, from day one, your actions, public utterances, and overall conduct shall be one, that points to your partisan neutrality. This is one of the surest ways we can engender public confidence in us during our work in this election year”

The Ghana Police Service disclosed it had established an Election Security Secretariat, the first of its kind to oversee election-related security matters.

“This has helped in the effective planning and execution of all elections-related security matters”, COP Asumadu added.

The Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, urged the public to cooperate with the police by providing information to assist them in the discharge of their duties.

“The police, however, have the responsibility to build the public confidence and trust. I am certain that you will stand the test of time in ensuring high the image of the Ghana Police Service”, he added.

According to Mr. Yakubu, the government has been working to position the service from its lost glory by supporting it with logistics to promote peace and order.
