Accra 2019. Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, the Inspector General of the General Police Service received Ms Ana Sanchez, ARAP’s Team Leader. During the meeting, ARAP presented the results of the just closing “Communication with Communities” programme and analysed with the IGP the future collaborations in different areas within the legal department, the communication department, the operational department, and the technological(ICT) units.
ARAP actively works alongside GPS to ensure accountability and transparency throughout its own policies, procedures and working practices. Such efforts seek to strengthen internal integrity and accountability, necessary for combatting corruption within the police ranks, and staying true to their motto ‘Service With Integrity’. GPS is a crucial actor of Ghana's anti-corruption chain, as one of the main investigating and prosecuting agencies.
The Ghana Police Service (GPS) is the primary law enforcement agency for the country. Its history dates back to 1821 with the introduction of professional policing. Working under the Ministry of Interior, it seeks to protect and preserve the internal security of Ghana, helping to ensure citizens can enjoy safe, secure and peaceful communities. Its focus on crime prevention and detection, as well as the apprehension and prosecution of offenders, also makes it an important stakeholder for ARAP’s anti-corruption efforts in Ghana.
