The Ghana Police Service would now feed all frontline Police officers working to maintain law and order as the country fights coronavirus cases in the country. According to the Director of Police Public Affairs, Sheilla Abyie-Buckman, this directive would help officers often remain at post instead of moving around in search of food when needed.
“The IGP took the initial decision of giving the money to the police officers involved in the operation in cash so the money was given to commanders to disburse in cash. But from our monitoring in the earlier days, we found that Police Officers will leave their duty points to go in search for food and water to buy while their counterpart soldiers stayed at their duty point. The IGP also instructed commanders to arrange transportation of the men and women from the briefing point to their duty point and back to their briefing point.”
