The Ghana Police Service is seriously understaffed, Interior Minister Ambrose Dery has told Parliament.

He explained that the Service needs a minimum number of 56,000 personnel, and there is currently a deficit of 23,000, but the Service is in the process of recruiting 2,000 more.

In a concluding remark before the House approved the 2018 budget estimates of GHC 2.6 billion for the Ministry of the Interior, the sector minister said the current police ratio to Ghana’s population is 1:848.

The House approved the estimates, noting that, the Ministry had staff and logistics constraints.

Some other estimates approved were GHC 598.62 million for the planned programmes of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture; GHC 9.2 billion for the Ministry of Education and GHC532.68 million for the Ministry of Roads and Highways
