Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare

The Ghana Police Service has announced its intention to stop displaying faces of suspects who are yet to be convicted.

The Service in a Facebook post on Sunday noted that the identities of suspects will only be displayed when the suspects are properly convicted before a competent court of law.

This new move, according to the Service, forms part of its determination “to become a world-class Police organisation and the best institution in the country, serving as a reference point in Africa and beyond.”

The police, however, mentioned that suspects who are declared wanted by the courts with a warrant of arrest for various offences, shall, where necessary, have their faces and other physical attributes published for purposes of identification, arrest, and prosecution.

It, therefore, called on the public “to support us in our transformation efforts.”
