At least 40 Ghana Police Service chief inspectors have filed a lawsuit against Inspector-General of Police (IGP) George Akuffo Dampare over what they describe as unjustifiable refusal of the service to promote them.

In a writ filed at the High Court in Kumasi, the police officers claim they have been excluded from a series of promotion prompted by the service to grant special amnesty to police officers who had obtained degrees before 2020, after they were enrolled into the service.

It is their case that despite serving between 25 to 30 years, the police administration has promoted their junior colleagues under the same amnesty, but had refused to grant them entry to the Police Academy to facilitate their promotions to assistant superintendents of police (ASP).

The 40 plaintiffs are therefore urging the court to order the IGP and the other defendants to elevate them, grant them direct access to the Police Academy and further restore their loss income following the failure to promote them.
