The Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Apeatu has said that the recent police reshuffle in the top hierarchy of the police administration is to bring new ideas to deal with the increasing crime rates in the country.

Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM, Mr Apeatu said the general public will soon witness some arrests and other innovative measures to foil the increasing crime rates in the country.

“We are up to the test and over the days, you will see our response to some of these things.”

“Reshuffling is a normal thing in the police service and whoever thinks that reshuffling is not going to help should better think differently,” he added.

“Definitely we are bringing new people with innovations and other things, so it is not like somebody is being victimised... it is to bring new ideas over time, very soon, you will see a number of arrests.”

There have been major changes in the top hierarchy of the Ghana Police Service involving some senior officers.

Dr George Akuffo Dampare, Director General of Police Operations, has been reassigned to head the Research and Planning Department.

He is to be replaced immediately by the Eastern Regional Police Commander, DCOP Simon Afeku.

No reason was immediately given for the reshuffle. However, the IGP has confirmed the suspicion that the reshuffle was done due to the increasing armed robbery incidents recorded.

A Lebanese man was gunned down by armed robbers in the Tema municipality on Wednesday, February 28.

The victim who died at the scene had gone to withdraw some money from Zenith Bank at the Tema Industrial Area when the incident happened.

The daylight robbery comes barely 24 hours after a similar incident at the North Industrial Area in Accra Tuesday morning where the armed robbers made away with Gh¢500,000
