The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, has begun a two-day working tour to the North-East Region as part of efforts to improve ties between the Police Service and the public. They will be joined by members of the Police Management Board.
The tour’s goal is to put policies in place that will make the police department a more approachable and responsive institution.
The IGP and his team will interact with chiefs, public figures, and local residents from a variety of communities around the North-East Region during their stay.
In doing so, the IGP and his team will be able to hear any security concerns that the communities may have and develop security measures that are tailored to each community.
The tour gives the IGP and his team a chance to interact with the police command and personnel stationed in the North-East Region while learning first-hand about the welfare, operational, and administrative difficulties faced by the officers. This will help to ensure that these concerns are properly addressed.
Over 80% of the nation has been visited by the IGP and the Police Management Board so far during their tour of the nation.
Numerous contacts during the trip with police officers and members of the public have promoted a climate of cooperation and openness.
Across the country, Regional, Divisional, and District Police Commands have carried out similar activities.
