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.

This was disclosed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong Boanuh, at a Press Soiree with the top hierarchy of the Police Service.

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.

He called for good rapport between the Media and the Police.

Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt, urged the Police to be professional in their job, adding that the situation where some hoodlums engage in untoward acts in the name of the Police Service, must cease.

Executive Secretary of the National Media Commission (NMC), George Sarpong said the Commission has developed an app to support the Police Service in their work during the elections.

President of the Institute of Public Relations, Mawuko Afadzinu, talked about what he called “crises of cynicism” in the country and expressed the need for the Police and the Media to work together to check such tendencies.
