Police officers of the Ghana Police Service lauded government for announcing that every police officer would soon have GH¢50,000 insurance cover.

The police officers in an interview with Today indicated their commitment to support the government to provide them insurance cover.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr David Asante-Apeatu, who disclosed this during the closing ceremony of the training programme for Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) reform in Accra recently said the amount would be used in case of death in the line of duty and three children would be catered for from nursery to tertiary.

He added that even if one should die accidentally or a natural death, the family would be entitled to GH¢ 25,000, and if an officer should suffer permanent disability, he or she would be entitled to GH¢25,000.

Mr Asante-Apeatu said more attention had been given to the MTTD due to the cumulative negative public perception of the department that had an effect on the whole police organisation.

He reaffirmed that the Ghana Police Service had begun a major transformation programme to lift the organisation to a status in line with its vision “to become a world-class police service capable of delivering planned, democratic, protective, and peaceful services up to international standards.”

“The unacceptable situations where police officers on duty, out of sheer arrogance, allow complainants, informants and suspects to parade the corridors of police stations and wait for hours without attention can no longer be tolerated,” he said.

He urged the police officers to do away with all in-disciplined and anti-social attitudes which lower the esteem of the service.
