Inspector General Of Police(IGP), James Oppong Boanuh has assured Ghanaians that, the Ghana Police Service is determined to maintained law and order in the country as has been the mantra of the Service
IGP James Oppong Boanuh made the assurance when he was commissioning New

“Any criminal who thinks he can commit a crime and go score free should change his mind because the Ghana Police will go after you”, he claimed
Adding his voice to the assurance made by the IGP, the Central Regional Police Commander DCOP Habiba Twumasi Sarpong encouraged all Police Officers who will be posted to the newly built Police station to help maintain the dignity and integrity of the service by discharging their duties responsibly
Ghana Police Service has come under serious criticism due to the awkward behaviour of some of the Officers and it is in this vein that the Central Regional Police Commander has given them such hardcore advice of which he is expecting them to live with it.
On his part, the Member of Parliament for Efutu Constituency who double as the Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Alexander Afenyo Markin underscored the need for Ghanaians to support the course of the Police especially in crime-fighting because he was of the opinion that the police alone cannot fight crime which has been an albatross on the neck of Ghanaians in recent time
It is on the issue of crime and security that the Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) has decided to embark on a demonstration dubbed ‘March For Justice’ on July 6, 2021, to register their displeasure to the government.
The Greater Accra Police Administration in its Press Release, yesterday indicated that it will not allow NDC to do the demonstration but the IGP in a meeting with the leadership of the organizers of the demonstrations today, have come to a conclusion that NDC can do the demonstration subject to the covid 19 protocols and the laws of the land
