The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) claims a recent survey it conducted has shown that majority of Ghanaians have lost confidence in public institutions, with the Police Service and the Office of the President seen as the most corrupt Institutions in the country.

This is the result of a public perception survey conducted by the IEA to solicit the views of the citizenry by assessing the impact that the current economic situation has on them.

But responding to the survey of IEA on Okay FM’s "Ade Akye Abia" Morning Show, the PRO of Ghana Police Service, Superintendant Cephas Arthur says the findings from the survey is not a true reflection of what is happening in the Police service.

He says the survey is conducted as if there is a rubber stamp already for the Ghana Police Service to declare the Police Service as the most corrupt institution, in order to make their research credible due to the perception Ghanaians hold about the Police.

He bemoaned the way researchers overlook the effort of the Ghana Police Service to curtail unprofessional conduct and corruption which is rampant in every institution in the country thereby thwarting the measures the security service has put in place to check itself of such attitude.

He mentioned that the Ghana Police Service is the only state institution that has made effort to control these bad practices; wondering the motive of IEA and CDD researches that only look for the negativity of institutions and not their effort in doing things professionally right.

“Every institution has unprofessional conduct and corruption in it, and it is only the Police Service that you can see there is an effort to curtail these bad practices. Didn’t the researchers see these measures or they are irrelevant to them? We are doing soul searching to deal with unprofessional conduct and corruption and we are not looking at this research….Perception can be borne out of something which may not exist anymore….other institutions are taking huge money in secrecy and it is unfortunate that it is the Ghc1.00 the police take from drivers that the public can see,” he bemoaned.

Superintendant Cephas Arthur demanded to know which institution in Ghana they can confidently say that they putting measures in place to fight unprofessional conduct and corruption.

He maintained that every institution in Ghana is corrupt and that it is only the Police Service that has come up with special monitoring unit and other measures to ensure the police will work professionally; adding “no institution in Ghana comes near the police effort in fighting corruption”.
