Police to Recruit 8,000 Soon – Interior Minister

The Interior Minister, Ambrose P Dery has hinted that police administration will soon recruit about 8,000 personnel to augment the current police strength in the country.

At the first ever National Police Command Conference in Kumasi last Thursday, he revealed that premium will be placed on female recruits aimed at correcting the male-female imbalance in the service.

The move he explained is part of series of interventions government intends rolling out this year including a housing scheme to accommodate personnel in view of challenges most are going through at the various barracks in the country.

Though Mr Dery failed to give details regarding the housing scheme expected to be rolled out by the government to solve the accommodation problems of police personnel, he said the public/police ratio in combating crime was not encouraging and, therefore, more hands were needed to promote effective policing in maintaining law and order in society.
