IGP Dampare sued by 40 Chief Inspectors over delayed promotion



IGP Dampare sued by 40 Chief Inspectors over delayed promotion 60

Forty (40) Chief Inspectors in the Ghana Police Service have sued the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, over what they described as the unjustifiable refusal of the Police Service to promote them.

In a writ filed at the Kumasi High Court, the police officers claim they were excluded from a series of promotions prompted by a special amnesty granted to police officers who passed out from police training schools by 2008 and had obtained university degrees as of 2020.

According to these police officers, even though the Police Administration had promoted their junior colleagues to other ranks under the aforementioned special amnesty, it has refused to give them similar promotion albeit they have served the force for over 10 years, to aid their entry into the Police Academy in furtherance of their promotions to the ranks of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).

The plaintiffs said the refusal by the Police Administration to promote them had created a situation whereby their salary increment had been negatively affected, while their junior colleagues were now at par with them in terms of ranks, which further dampened morale in the service.
