There is corruption in police service- COP Ken Yeboah
The Ashanti Regional Police Commander COP Ken
Yeboah has admitted that some police officers
engage in corrupt deals dragging the name of the
service into disrepute.

Police officers in the country have been perceived
to be bribe takers who extort
monies from drivers and criminals whilst on
duties.

COP Ken Yeboah discounted claims that drivers are
obliged to give bribes to police officers to avoid
being harassed.

‘There is corruption in the police service, and
public perception affect us negatively because
people do not have that confidence in us and so
people will not provide information, people will
not like to work with us. I think its a bad thing
we don’t have to encourage. So when we get you,
you are tried and dismissed,’ he said.

Speaking on Ultimate Breakfast Show with Lantam
Papanko, he explained that it’s wrong for drivers
on the roads to give monies to police officers on
patrol duties.

He described drivers and police men who give and
receive bribes as saboteurs of national
development.

According to him, complaints always drag their
feet in shaming and naming corrupt police
officers.

‘Those who give the monies are not prepared to
come forward to complain to us that this and that
police officer took money from them. He knows that
we will arrest him for giving money to the police
officer so he won’t come, its an offence to give
and take bribes, if you are caught we have to deal
with you,’ he said.

The regional commander indicated that police
personnel have been warned not to collect bribes
saying any police officer caught engaging in
corrupt practices will be dealt with.

‘More than three officers have been accused of
extorting monies, they are going to be tried, if
found guilty, they will not be spared,’ he
cautioned.

He remarked that there are some police officers
who have been doing their work diligently.
