The Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, has warned that the service will no more tolerate lazy detectives, thus asking his charges to do all they can to clean the negative public perceptions.

COP Yeboah was speaking at the closing ceremony of an eight weeks Detective Training Course 2/2021 at the Detective Training Academy (DTA), in Tesano, Accra.

The course held for 95 Detectives selected from the various security agencies, seeks to equip personnel with more contents of Criminal procedure and law, Intelligence gathering and surveillance, crime scene management, human trafficking, law of evidence, Cyber Crime, Report writing among others.

The Director General of CID reminded the Detectives that sanctions would be applied to those who misconducted themselves.

If you do not do the right thing, you could be demoted or dismissed. So do the right the thing.”

He told the graduating class to desist from setting their own set of rules reminding them that “there are procedures to be followed. Don’t settle cases without following procedures.”

COP Yeboah said as Detectives, there were many risks associated with their work, addig that those risks, could be minimised if they follow proper procedures.

He said it was also prudent that they followed the path of truth, adding that “when it is white say it is white and if it is black say so.

Take responsibility for your decision and accept the consequences. Do not take actions based on your emotions“.

He further admonished them to eschew nepotism and avoid “whom you know” attitudes as well as ensure that justice was served to all not the highest bidder.

He said detectives who failed to do their work well could result in the discharge of criminals and the conviction of innocent people.

He called on the officers to hold in high esteem, the integrity of the service at all times, while ensuring that the country’s interest comes first.
