Commissioner of Police (COP) David Asante-Apeatu was on Wednesday named Ghana’s new Inspector General of Police.
“This appointment of this highly qualified police official is the first step that I am taking in that regard. I think that our people will feel secure when they know that they have a police service that is honest and that will enforce the laws of the country so that the people of the country can go about their lawful duties in peace and security”.
Ghana’s new IGP, until his appointment, was the Director-General in charge of Information Communication Technology (ICT) & Marine Directorate of the Police Service.
He previously served as the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service responsible for about three thousand detectives across the length and breadth of Ghana; a post he held diligently for about four years (2003 to 2007). He was responsible to the Inspector-General of Ghana Police for the administration and training at the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service.
