The acting Inspector-General of Police, Dr, George Akuffo Dampare, has undertaken his first major shake-up in the police service by moving around 30 top officers.
Among the top officers affected is the Director-General of Welfare, Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah, who has been moved to the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards Bureau (PIPS).
Ms. Tiwaa Addo Danquah became infamous the unfortunate kidnapping and killing of four young ladies in Takoradi. Ms. Tiwa had persistently misled the entire country throughout the search for the young ladies who were kidnapped by a syndicate of Nigerian and Ghanaian criminals.
She had given the country and the families of the victims false hopes that they were in good health.
Eventually, decomposing bodies and skeletons believed to belong to the young ladies were discovered.
Yet, Ms. Tiwaa shrugged off her catastrophic showing in the kidnapping case and was continued working as though nothing happened.
She is now responsible for the conducts of officers of the Police Service. Critics think she does not deserve such a position as her Takoradi showing should have earned her a dismissal a long time ago.
Meanwhile, other reshuffling affected the Head of Education, Research and Training at the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD), Superintendent Alexander Obeng, who has been moved to the Public Relations Department as the Director.
The Public Relations Officer of the Criminal Investigations Department, DSP Juliana Obeng, has been moved to the Accra Regional Police command as PRO.
The Director-General in charge of Police Operations, COP Christian Tetteh Yohuno has been moved to Director-General in charge of Administration.
Other changes include COP Vincent Redeemer of the Police Professional Standard Bureau (PPSB), who will now be the Director-General in charge of Special Duties.
COP Edward Tabiri, the Director-General of the Police Intelligence Department will now head the Planning & ICT Directorate, while COP Frederick Adu Anim, the Director-General of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD), will now head the Human Resources department.
