He said it was improper for the Police Service and other security agencies, which are supposed to be professionals, to pledge allegiance to a government in power. At the ceremony, 132 cadet officers were commissioned to the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP). The government, President Akufo-Addo, said, also anticipated that the police would strengthen engagement with the communities they served in the hope that it would be a more sustainable way of reducing crime. Towards that end, President Akufo-Addo challenged officers and men of the service to work hard at redeeming its image following low rankings it consistently received in the annual Afrobarometer Corruption Perception surveys.
