Public Relations Officer of the Upper West Regional Police Command, Inspector Gideon Ohene Boateng believes for corruption to manifest, it takes two to ‘tango’ and as such, both the giver and receiver commit the same offence.
Speaking on Radio Waa’s morning show program, Wa Gyaa Yela on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, he states that “It takes two to tango so let us not give blame to only the police because the police will not dip his hand into your pocket before he collects money so don’t corrupt the police” he cautioned.
The officer was responding to the believes of society that the Ghana police service is full of corruption and he accentuated that no police officer will ever forceful take money from the public just that the public in their attempt to seek for leniency they end up giving money to the officers and turn to say the police is corrupt.
He advised the public to desist from bribing police with money but rather ensure that the rules and regulations as well as the relevant laws of the society are respected and the police will always be a friend.
He however admonished officers of the law to distance them self from acts of corruption and enforce the law to the later.
