At the meeting, the IGP assured the political parties of fairness in the delivery of security and, therefore, asked for their collaboration.
“Crime has no colours and so is security”, said Mr Oppong-Boanuh.
The political party representatives took turns to share their expectations with the Police hierarchy.
In summary, they said that confidence in the police must not only come from civilians but also from the conduct of individual police officers through the professional execution of their mandate.
The IGP assured them of professionalism in carrying out police duties.
