Nana Akufo-Addo said  the aim of government is to strengthen the Police and fashion it into an honest, disciplined, efficient and robust force. He urged the Police administration to ensure proper maintenance of the vehicles. Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery stated government will continue to address the host of challenges of Police personnel such as the promotions of some 750 officers, which have been long pending. The Deputy Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, who represented the Inspector General of Police (IGP), said the transformation agenda of government as far as the Police Service is concerned is in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 16. That goal, he said, places peace, justice, accountable and inclusive institutions at the core of sustainable development. He thus assured Ghanaians that the Service will use the new vehicular resources to serve the people of Ghana. The Ghana Police Service employs over 30,000 officers across the 651 stations nationwide, operating in12  divisions.
