IGP Dampare

Eighty-Two (82) unhappy Police officers have sued the Attorney General (1st Defendant), the Ghana Police Service (2nd Defendant) and the Inspector General of Police (3rd Defendant) for acting unfairly and capriciously with respect to the failure of the Service to promote them after the completion of their studies through the study leave with pay policy.

In a suit filed at the High Court, Accra, the police officers said they were granted study leave for the 2017/2018 academic year and after successfully completing their studies, the Ghana Police Service has refused to promote them or accepted them into the Police College.

These officers say despite notifying the Police authorities and petitioning the service to promote them, they have refused while other officers under similar circumstances have been promoted.

The aggrieved officers have prayed the court to direct the Police Service to grant those amongst them who qualify for accelerated promotions as well as permit all of them to enter the Police College/Academy without any further delay.
