Police worse off under Dampare; morale of personnel gone – Fmr CID Boss

A former Director General of CID of the Ghana Police Service, retired Commissioner of Police (COP), Mr Bright Oduro has said the morale of the personnel in the service has declined under the leadership of the new Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.

He believes there are begging issues within the service that have been  left untouched and negatively affecting the Police administration.

In an interview on Inside Politics on TV XYZ, the retired officer bemoaned secret recruitments in the police service and indicated that it was bad.

“During our time, police recruitments were advertised and people who made it into the service were those who passed the training… Although there was protocol but it did not take over the traditional recruitment as we see today,” he stated.

Apart from that, COP RTD Oduro said the current police administration was not transparent with certain information such as detailed accounts of some crimes that have been committed in the past, adding that centralising police communication was bad.

To him, decentralising police communication was the way to go because it brings about clarity of issues unlike centralising it to only Accra where information is massaged.

One thing he also added was that the IGP, Dr Dampare is not transparent with his management strategy and also fails to consult other predecessors.

COP Oduro believes the morale of the police is down because the chain of communication among police officers has been stifled and preventing personnel from voicing out issues bothering them.
