Sometime in 2020, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh assured political parties of fairness in the delivery of security.

He established that it is the duty of the police to protect all citizens despite their political affiliation.

“Crime has no colours and so, is security”, Mr Oppong-Boanuh stated at a meeting with stakeholders in Accra.

He added that confidence in the Police must not only come from civilians but also from the conduct of individual Police Officers through the professional execution of their mandate.
