THE Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Paul Quaye, has cautioned corrupt and unscrupulous persons who have found their way into the service to quit before the long arms of justice descend on them with appropriate sanctions.

"Such misfits and undesirable officers must advise themselves and leave the service on their own volition before they are flushed out in shame," he said.

The IGP was speaking at the closing ceremony of an in-service training programme organised for drill and weapon instructors in the Ghana Police Service.

The three-week training course was aimed at retraining the instructors to improve upon their human resource development and also ensure standardisation of training programmes in all police training schools.

Participants were drawn from all the six police training schools in Accra, Winneba, Koforidua, Ho, Kumasi and Pwalugu and they were trained in selected courses such as foot and raffle drill exercises, physical training, weapons training, leadership skills, human rights, confidence building and riot control techniques.

Others were basic officer skills, defence techniques, public order management, code of conduct and discipline.

The course was designed, among other things, to sharpen the professional instructional skills of the drill and weapon instructors and also build their capacity to meet the varied challenges of contemporary democratic policing.

Mr  Quaye said the operational success or failures of the Police Service were related to the quality of training given to personnel, adding that regular in-service training courses had become a primary requirement that must be satisfied in policing tactics. He urged the participants to be determined not only to advocate for change but also for change itself.

" You have the daunting task of turning out police officers with steely nerves to tackle the most hardened criminal, yet gentle and sensitive to human right issues," Mr Quaye said.

 The participants later demonstrated what they had learnt on the parade grounds, after which they were awarded certificates and  asked to impart what they had learnt to the rank and file in their respective regions, divisions, districts and units for the ultimate benefit of the service and the country.
