Forty (40) Chief Inspectors in the Ghana Police Service have sued the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.
The aggrieved officers sued the IGP over what they described as the unjustifiable refusal of the service to promote them.
The officers are before the Kumasi High Court, alleging that they have been excluded from a series of promotions.
According to them, although the service granted special amnesty to police officers who had obtained degrees before 2020, after they were enrolled in the service, they have not been considered for promotions.
They have also told the court that they have served between 25 and 30 years, but they have not been promoted.
The officers claim the police administration has promoted their junior colleagues under the same amnesty but refused to grant them entry to the Police Academy to facilitate their promotions to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).
The 40 plaintiffs are therefore praying to the court to order the IGP to grant them direct access to the Police Academy and further restore their loss of income following the failure to promote them.
