IGP dismisses new police recruits

About 3,000 newly recruited officers of the Ghana Police Service have been sacked


The affected recruits include those under training at the National Police Training School (NPTS) in Accra and the Service’s training schools in Kumasi, Ho, Koforidua and Pwalugu in the Upper East Region.

A letter written to Commanding Officer of the Pwalugu Police Training School by COP Beatrice Vib-Sanziri, the Director-General in charge of Human Resources, said all the recruits who submitted only WASSCE certificates should be referred to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for further vetting.

According to the letter, all those who submitted BECE, NVTI, NABPTEX and City and Guilds certificates are to return home.

The number of affected recruits at Pwalugu alone is 835. The revocation of their recruitment was on the orders of acting IGP David Asante-Apietu.
