The Ghana Police Service has denied claims that it deliberately frustrated and interdicted 17 police recruits.

The 17 recruits who were said to be on probation took their authorities to court for unfair treatment after they were evicted from their rooms at the police training school.

The Ghana Police Service however said they treated them fairly by offering them an alternative place of abode but they refused leading to their eviction.

An Accra fast track high court, on Thursday, presided over by Justice Edward Amoako Asante found the IGP, Paul Tawiah Quaye, in contempt of court for refusing to reinstate them into the service.

In an interview with Citi News, the Director of General Legal and Prosecutions for the Ghana Police Service, ACP Ken Yeboah on the other hand, said the recruits stage-managed the whole issue and involved the media which led to their interdiction consequently.

“They were police constables who had passed out without fully serving their probation so they were not fully fledged constables.

"There was also the issue of new recruits; since these ones [indicted police officers] had passed out, they had to make way for the new officers”

ACP Yeboah also said that the posture of the police service depended on IGP’s decision to reinstate the police officers since the court had ruled in the favour of the seventeen officers.

“However a police officer who has not been confirmed is not likely to become an efficient officer” he was quick to add.
