Criminologist and lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Technology (KNUST), Dr. Jones Opoku Ware, has opined that there was nothing wrong with the decision by the Police administration to recruit qualified children of service personnel who die in the line of duty.
The lecturer says he had analysed the comments and come to the conclusion that the policy is a good one.
He claimed that the Policy “came from the heart of love.”
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he claimed that police personnel face real threats on the job and that there is no guarantee that they would survive.
When the police employ guns in their work, he stated, “You cannot forecast the operation of the police force.”
It is a good policy, he continued, that the Police Administration has recognized the need to implement to recruit competent offspring of service members who pass away in the line of duty.
The lecturer continued by saying that this would inspire police officers to perform at their highest level given the new policy and the knowledge that their families would not be forgotten even when they passed on to glory.
He urged Ghanaians to assist the Police in implementing this strategy to “motivate them to work correctly, so they will know that the nation is solidly behind them.”
