Police to collaborate with UK, others in 2016 elections

The Police administration says it is collaborating with Britain and other foreign counterparts to help in providing adequate security for this year’s general elections.

The acting Inspector General of Police John Kudalor admits this year’s poll is crucial and assured that no stone should be left unturned.

In an interview with Joy News, Mr. Kudalor said the police administration will also train personnel on how to be professional in handling elections.

Ghanaians will go to the polls to elect a president and 275 members of parliament on November 7, 2016, a month earlier than the date previous elections were held.

Some election hotspots have been identified across the country and the need to beef up security in those areas has been emphasized by various stakeholders.

Mr. Kudalor told Joy News’ Beatrice Adu that the administration is bent on ensuring that the 2016 general elections are made peaceful.

So far as general security is concerned, he said the administration has been working with all the necessary institutions to ensure that the police service is able to maintain law and order, and protect lives and properties.
