Police recruits have been reminded that the Ghana Police Service is not an avenue for them to engage in underhand dealings to make unjustified wealth but rather a call to serve.
At the passing out parade of 581 recruits comprising 327 females and 254 males at the Police Public Training School at Pwalugu in the Upper East Regio, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah admonished them to be of good behaviour in line with the motor of the service “service with integrity”.
“You have chosen a career which calls for selfless service to humanity, commitment and sacrifices. Bear in mind that it is not a sanctuary to make unjustified wealth.
”Therefore, desist from corrupt practices which have the tendency to bring the image of the Service into disrepute. Never forget the motto of the Service ‘Service with Integrity’.
”Avoid bad association and put on the cloth of patriotism, humility, courtesy, honesty, civility, and commitment to the career you have chosen.
”You will excel in every endeavour of your career when you consistently observe these professional”, she advised.
