IGP charges police officers to change attitude to restore public confidence

The Inspector General of Police David Asante-Apeatu has charged police officers in the country to change their attitudes towards work in order to redeem the lost trust and confidence from the public.

According to him, the challenges they have had concerning their reputation over the years are largely attributed to the attitudes of their colleagues and subordinates.

In order to erase those perceptions in the future, the IGP advised the officers to work hard toward the creation of new image so as to win the confidence of Ghanaians in the country and beyond.

“It is sad but worth stating without mincing words at this conference that a lot of us have stepped on the slippery moral slope and with initial justifications of a few unethical behaviours, we have shamelessly graduated into full-blown ethical virus slipping very fast down the slope and infesting all your subordinates and peers”.

“If the future of the service will continue to win the confidence and support of the general public as well as some key strategic players in the country and beyond, we ought to change our attitude. In fact and indeed, attitude is everything; without it, nothing happens”, he said.

This was contained in a speech the Director-General of Operations of the Ghana Police Service COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno delivered on behalf of the IGP David Asante-Apeatu at the MTTD National Command Conference at the Police Headquarters in Accra on Thursday June 8.

He reiterated that he believes the officers will rethink and have an attitudinal change that will demand respect from Ghanaians as they exhibit professionalism and leadership in their work and also generate more pragmatic and responsive solutions to effectively deal with the unprofessional conduct of some officers to reduce reckless and avoidable killings on our roads.

He said, “it is my sincere believe that this conference will provoke a rethinking; an attitudinal change in all of us. A change that will inure to the benefit of the Ghanaian people, a change that will demonstrate an MTTD that respects the dignity of the citizenry, a change that will showcase the new MTTD with a much more sharpened professional leadership across the command chain”.

The IGP also urged MTTD to ensure that road users adhere to traffic regulations with the highest level of impartiality on our roads to avoid needless accidents.
