Twenty-two recruits at the Pwulugu Police Training School in the Upper East Region have been dismissed a1radioonline.com has learnt.
Commander of the school, ACP Victor Adusei Poku, who disclosed this to a1radioonline.com mentioned that most of the sacked recruits were people who came through the protocol list.
According to him, most of the sacked recruits came in with fake certificates and admission letters belonging to other people.
“Some of them did not meet our requirement. Our requirements are that you should have both your JHS and SHS certificates but most of them came with their JHS so they were withdrawn. We continued our vetting and found out that most of those who came with protocol mostly came with certificates and admission letters belonging to other people. So at the moment, we have twenty-two of them who have been discharged.”
He mentioned that although the school has the right to prosecute the sacked recruits, it is impossible because most of the recruits are not natives of the Upper East region.
“You find it difficult to prosecute them because they are not from here. Their parents are not here and we can only prosecute them in the Upper East and since they are not from here, we cannot get them to court. I mean who will even bring them to court? They cannot come so we have given them self recognizance bail and have dismissed them.”
ASP Victor Adusei Poku indicated that the school will continue with its vetting process until the recruits are passed out as Police are passed out any recruit found wanting will be sent packing.
The sacked recruits includes fourteen women and eight men.
This is the second time in the year recruits have been sacked from the Pwulugu Police Training School. In the first batch eighty students who were found to have come with fake and BECE certificates withoutout SHS certificates were asked to go home.
