As promised earlier, the Ghana Police Service has published numbers that can be reached by motorists who are treated unfairly by police officers.
For years, Ghanaian road users have complained about how they are abused by police officers. Some claim the police officers extort money from them even when that have not made in road infractions.
This has contributed to the public perception that the Ghana Police Service is a corrupt institution.
To help fight this perception, the IGP announced that a “special task force has been instituted to conduct periodic checks on the roads by interviewing drivers, passengers and other road users to collect further information on allegation of such unprofessional conduct by police officers.”
Now the numbers that will be used to file the complaints have also been released.
The hotlines for the calls are: 0550323323 for voice calls and SMS only, 0275000156 for voice calls and SMS only and 0206639121 for WhatsApp or videos only.
