The Minority Leader in Parliament, Mr Haruna Iddrisu, has called for “more noteworthy changes” of policing in the country in the wake of the homicide of another police officer in the line of obligation by furnished men on Monday.
As per him, he has been dependably educated that many cops were not adequately and satisfactorily set up to ensure lives and property, which highlighted the requirement for changes.
He called for greater local area inclusion and support concerning the police, and the arrangement of present-day coordinations as a component of the changes to upgrade crafted by the police.
“That is the reason I persistently share the view that as costly as CCTV cameras would be, it would be the best approach into the future,” he said.
Mr Iddrisu was addressing columnists at the dispatch of a book named: “My vital turning points: An outing from the town to Parliament and past,” by a previous Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Mr Kenneth Dzirasah.
In the book, the previous Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon and South Tongu narratives his background from youth through to his grown-up life, catching fascinating parts of his life as a legal counsellor, columnist and government official.
Murder of the police officer
Mr Iddrisu comments returns on of the homicide of Lands Corporal Emmanuel Osei of the National SWAT unit and an unidentified lady by presumed looters who trapped a vehicle conveying cash at James Town, close to Korle Bu in Accra on Monday.
The police said it had dispatched a stupendous security activity to chase down the presumed burglars.
‘Breakdown of the rule of law’
Mr Iddrisu said the homicide of another cop showed that there was a “continuous breakdown of peace and lawfulness,” and censured the public authority for not doing what’s necessary to ensure the security of cops.
“The essential obligation of the President is the wellbeing and security of the residents. Assuming what we are perusing is anything to pass by, we as a whole should all things considered express our mistake at the Presidency and the treatment of the issue of individual wellbeing and security,” he said.
He added: “When the cop who needs to ensure the state isn’t secure, then, at that point it comes up short.”
While stretching out his sympathies to the deprived family, Mr Iddrisu further called for quiet and limitation in the country while the Minority pushed for changes in the Ghana Police Service.
