The Police Administration has announced a comprehensive welfare package for police officers as part of measures to boost their morale for the job.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr David Asante-Apeatu, who announced this in Accra last Friday said every police officer will have an insurance cover to the value GH¢50,000 in the event of death while he or she is in the line of duty.

He said that even if an officer died accidentally or by natural death while in active service, his or her family would be entitled to a GH¢25,000 package.

An officer who would suffer a permanent disability in the discharge of his duty would also be entitled to GH¢25,000, he said while speaking at the closing ceremony of a restructuring training programme for 665 personnel of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service in Accra.

He further gave details of the package, saying that: “should any officer die in the line of duty, three of his children will be catered for from nursery to the tertiary level of education”.

“All of us have suffered from delays in the reimbursement of medical expenses. The truth is that the financial position of the service vis-a-vis the quantum of pending medical refunds is a worrisome situation and this insurance package has provided GH¢12,500 for critical ailment,” he said.
