AWW C’ssion: Our men with National Security don’t report to us – Police

The Director General in charge of operations at the Ghana Police Service DCOP George Alex Mensah has disclosed that police officers attached to the National security do not report to the hierarchy of the service once they are sent to their attachment.

“They report to their superiors there. They are not controlled by the police, they are assigned and managed by their supervisors once they join them. The new superiors also prepare the report on them and how they conduct themselves there. If they misconduct themselves, their supervisors will have to report through the laid down procedure,” he told the Commission probing the Ayawaso by-election violence.

He also revealed that so far, 35 police officers are on attachment to the National Security.

“ From the records 35 of our officers are attached to the national security and they were sent there before I took over as director of operations. I have not attached anyone there since I came in”.

Meanwhile, chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Jean Mensah has insisted that none of the officers who provided security at the various polling centers during the election was armed.

“There were no armed men who were manning any of the polling stations. I had the opportunity to visit about 15 polling stations and there were no armed men. Nobody has reported the presence of intimidating armed men” .
