Dampare Gives Professionalism Notes To Officers Ahead Of Arise Ghana Demo

The Inspector-General of the Ghana Police Service, Dr George Akufo Dampare has taken his men through a police professionalism lecture on crowd control ahead of the demonstration of a coalition calling itself Arise Ghana.

The Ghana Police boss paraded the police officers who will provide security to the demonstrators today, June 28, 2022, and tomorrow, June 29, 2022.

In his speech, he cautioned the police officers to be mindful of the fundamental human rights of the demonstrators.

“We should continue to remember that those demonstrators are human beings like us. Those demonstrators are Ghanaians like us. They are our brothers and sisters and therefore we should treat them with all the respect, the severity and the dignity that each and every human being deserves.

“In effect, we should treat them the way we would have loved to be treated if we were on the other side. It means as you go out there..if it is your effort that is going take for someone’s God-given destiny, please do that and do that joyously, do that with love, do that with a sense of humility and humanity and at the end of the day, we will win the hearts and minds of these demonstrators.

He also noted that his outfit will deploy two mobile police hospitals for the demonstration as the police service’s contribution.

By that, he said, “We want to show the world that as a country, our democracy is growing from strength to strength. This is the chance to demonstrate that and we cannot miss this opportunity”.

His lecture comes on the back of public backlash at the police for their unprofessional means of controlling crowds on countless occasions with a recent one on June 13, 2022, at the Islamic Senior High School in Kumasi.
