Mr John Kudalar, Inspector General of Police (IGP), made the call in a speech read on his behalf by the Director General of Administration, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Ransford Ninson, to officially close the course.
Forty nine Deputy Superintendents of Police attended the course and they were the fourth batch of senior police officers who have successfully gone through a five-week intensive training this year to enhance their command, staff, operational and managerial capabilities.
The training programmes at the college are designed to provide quality, professional, practical and skills development for senior police officers to help provide quality law enforcement services to the people of the country.
“You must resolve to appreciate that you remain accountable to the citizens and, hence, must relate to them as true public servants with courtesy and within the dictates of the law,” the IGP said.
He tasked them to hold their duties sacred, execute functions with pride and exhibit the highest level of professional excellence in all their official engagements.
Mr Kudalor said as the government was doing all it could to ensure the Service was better equipped to perform its duties effectively, the good people of Ghana expected them to fulfill their part of the contract by ensuring the safety and security of all.
He reminded the officers that aside their routine operations, some major national assignments like political rallies and the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in November would demand that they put their operational competence to bare to ensure the success of those exercises.
DSP Elizabeth Viney, the course prefect, expressed gratitude to the IGP and the Police Management and Advisory Board for the opportunity offered them and added that they would fully use the knowledge acquired in executing their duties and share it with colleagues who did not have the privilege to attend.
