Officers of the Ghana Police Service

The Ghana Police Service, as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, has suspended recruitment until further notice.

“Police training schools, recruits training activities have been suspended,” the Ghana Police Service said in a statement.

“Recruits, other than the final year students and the ‘passing out squad’ have been consequently released to go home until further directives.”

The statement, signed by the Director-General of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Service, Superintendent Mrs Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman, said other contingency measures in place for strict compliance included regularly disinfecting of police cells.

“Fresh” suspects would be screened before they are placed in custody, while persons who had been remanded to police custody and those who had committed felonious offences would be kept in cells.

“In order to contain the COVID-19 situation and protect all persons, the Police Administration is also appealing to all that, frequenting Police Stations, offices, cells and facilities may not be in their best interest,” it stated.
