The Ghana Police Service, has established a dedicated hotline for the Media to communicate effectively with the Police during the December 7 General Election, on any infraction or challenges they might encounter.

The IGP stressed the determination of the Police Service to protect every voter in the upcoming elections especially the media.

President of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), Roland Affail Monney, said the Police and the Media, constitute an indispensable link of the security setup of the country.

They must therefore cooperate and collaborate effectively in the pursuant of set objectives.

The Director General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Professor Amin Alhassan, catalogued a number of arbitraries on the part of the Police against GBC staff, especially its drivers on night duties.
