An ex-police inspector of the Ghana Police Service, Inspector Stephen Sarfo Amoah [Rtd] has urged the New Acting IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to give opportunities to young police officers in the service to also explore their God given talent.
According to him, there are more talented personnel who need the chance to explore and exhibit their talents in other fields.
Some also need the push to further their education to the top but are not given the opportunity to rise, this he believes is not the best.
His comment comes on the back of the appointment of COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare as the new acting IGP.
Speaking to Kwaku Owusu Adjei host of ‘Adwenekase’ morning show on Accra-based Original 91.9 FM on Thursday, July 22, 2021 Mr. Stephen Sarfo expressed confidence in COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare suggesting that he comes on board with new innovations to change the face of the police service.
“He is not a lazy man. He is a police officer who works with all seriousness and there are young police officers who have the ability to do same or learn further. Some are already holding higher qualifications but top officers do not give them the opportunity to exhibit their talents” he disclosed.
“I am pleading with him [Mr. Dompare] that as he mounts up there, he should give junior officers the opportunity just as he has gotten, to also rise to where he is”.
He also urged Mr. Dompare to bring back the police visibility system which was helping the police in their activities and importantly end broad day robbery.
On his part, a private legal practitioner who has served in the military before, Captain Rtd Nkrabea Effah Dartey also advised that he COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare surround himself with ‘correct’ director generals at all departments of the police service to help him in achieving the best for the service.
“He must take his time to select trusted and correct officers to head various departments who will help him work effectively,” he advised.
“As an IGP, you cannot do all the works so you need dependable police officers who you believe when given the position can work for you confidently. The selection of your staff officers, commanders, and departmental heads is the test of your ability to command” he added.
