President Akufo-Addo says approval has been given for the recruitment of four thousand (4,000) personnel to augment the strength of the Police Service.
He revealed that 961 of these recruits passed out between 22nd and 31st July this year (2019), in various Police Training Schools throughout the country.
“The second batch of one thousand (1,000) recruits are also due to graduate by the end of this month. Another batch, made up of two thousand (2,000) men and women, is scheduled to report for training by the end of this month,” he added.
These measures, according to the President, have been put in place by Government to reform the Police Service, and make it fit for purpose.
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Friday (September 13), when he addressed the graduation ceremony of the 49th Cadet Officers Course of the Ghana Police Service.
