Robust law enforcement agency needed to fight sophisticated crimes – IGP

General News
IGP - James Oppong-Boanuh


The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, has reiterated the need for a resilient and robust police service to fight crime.

His comment comes on the back of the recent increase in the rate of crime and the continuous evolution of crime and their sophistication.

Mr Oppong-Boanuh was addressing this year's congregation at the opening of a promotion course for constables.

The programme will run across the country simultaneously in two weeks to train some 11,854 police personnel of various ranks whose promotions are pending.

The IGP added that the quality of human resource in every organisation is paramount for high-quality performance and sustainability.

He also advised police personnel to use the opportunity to broaden their horizon on contemporary law enforcement strategies and prepare for the task ahead of them in their professional career.
