Dr. Akuffo Dampare, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), has launched a new police shuttle service.

In a social media post, the Police administration said: “The Police Administration has, therefore, deployed buses on designated routes with pick-up and drop off points to ensure the safe and easy transportation of personnel, especially during the rush hour when movement along the roads is usually a struggle”.

“The Administration acknowledges that some members of the general public had expressed concern about the practice of police personnel boarding commercial vehicles with weapons and the possible danger posed to other occupants of these vehicles”.

“The spectacle of uniformed officers struggling to get on board vehicles during the rush hour is not good for morale in the service and does not inspire public confidence in the police.”

“The Administration is certain the shuttle service will reduce these concerns and ensure that both the police officers and the commuting public go about their duties in safety and dignity”.

“It is also expected to give some respite to officers and further boost their morale for enhanced performance.”

The program, which has been implemented in 15 of the 18 Police Operational Regions, aims to relieve officers’ commuting burdens while also ensuring that troops who carry guns for duty do so safely.
