The Inspector-General of Police, Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, has directed all police officers to wear their traditional police uniforms which are in the colours of blue-black, black and police camouflage during the December 7 elections.
This directive from the IGP is in response to public enquiries on the uniforms that will be used by police officers on the election day.
“The Inspector-General of Police Mr James Oppong-Boanuh has directed that all Police Officers wear the traditional police uniforms which are in the colours of blue-black, black and police camouflage; be it office or operational wear with the appropriate headgear for police duties,” a statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service read.
“Plain clothed officers of the Criminal Investigations and Police Intelligence Departments (CID and PID) will, however, wear their approved overt and covert uniforms with their ID cards readily available of identification,” the statement added.
The IGP further directed that no police officer wears a beard, except those who have been advised by medical officers not to have a close shave, supported by “excused shaving” document.
“The public should note that any police officer who wears any unpermitted clothing for election duties would be engaging in professional misconduct, which is subject to disciplinary proceedings,” the statement added.
