“Government has performed much creditably, the police today are much equipped than they have ever been The increased Police visibility on the streets goes a long to way to assure the community.

“ The changing phase of the police is perhaps best exemplified by the dramatic facelift of they have given the frontage of the police headquarters on the Ringroad in Accra, it is beautiful and I recommend to all institutions and indeed household,” the president said.

In February 2023, while presenting some equipment to the police at the police headquarters, the president said “We’re all witnessing the transformation of the Ghana police service under our very eyes. We see the discipline that has been restored to our roads, the enhanced Police visibility, and general discipline in society under the leadership of the IGP Dr. Akuffo Dampare.”
