The Ghana Police Service has been charged to do more than just requesting information from the public in dealing with the recent security upsets in the country.

The Deputy Upper East Regional Minister, Frank Fuseini Adongo, who made the assertion at the passing-out ceremony of 216 police recruits at the Police Public Safety Training School in Pwalugu in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region, believes that while it is good for the public to provide information, the security agencies must develop a comprehensive study which will put the security forces in the frontline while the public becomes a backbone.

It has been observed that the option of serving in the Ghana Police Service is one driven by self-motivation to contribute to national development through the protection of life and property at all times.

The police service is a profession requiring the key ingredients of discipline, selflessness and integrity to be relevant in the eye of the public and in upholding the good name of the service.

The Pwalugu Police Public Safety Training School was established in 2004.

The School which was originally established to train Police recruits had been privileged to have been used to train Community Protection Assistants, CPAs, and a section of Course 39 Cadet Officers.

Addressing the gathering, the Director General/Legal and Prosecution of the Ghana Police Service, COP Prosper Kwame Agblor, said the Ghana Police Services is focusing on enhancing the maintenance of law and order through community policing.

The Deputy Upper East Regional Minister, Frank Fuseini Adongo, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Zebila constituency reminded the recruits that they are coming out at a time the country is on high alert against terrorism and extremism.

Deserving recruits were awarded

Best in Musketry went to Kyere Kwadwo Prince, Best in physical training went to Onasis F. K. Konadu, Best in drill went to Aganah Arafat, Best in conduct went to Issah Marian and the overall best recruit went to Benjamin K. Anane. Currently, one hundred and seventy-five recruits are still under training at the Pwalugu Police Public Safety Training School.
