His call comes on the heels of the reported involvement of two police officers in a robbery attack on a GCB Bank bullion van at Ekye-Amanfrom in the Afram Plains South that left one person killed and a policeman escorting the vehicle, injured.

Barely a week after that despicable incident, another two officers were caught in car snatching.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, he described these recent happenings as tasteless and worrying.

Mr. Nkansah said everything should be done to stop the few bad nuts from tarnishing the reputation of the service through their criminal conduct.

He reminded serving officers to get right with the law to sustain public confidence and trust.

He also appealed to the senior officers to continue to inspire and assist their subordinates to uphold high moral values.
