1st Report January - June 2010
The police service has a total police force of 22,610 as at May 2008, and plans to increase the number to 40,000 by 2010. The Service has 2,754 occupied premises (both residential and non residential). 2,442 (88.7%) are rented and 312 (11.3%) are owned by the service. The service has accommodation short fall of 4,111 residential units. (Source: Auditor General, 2008 Audit Report on Police Accommodation in Ghana).
It is in anticipation of the lack of police accommodation, and in recognition to the need to increase security in the country that the NDC promised to “Build 50 pre-fabricated “Tent Houses” in heavy crime areas for the police service” The government is yet to fulfill the promise of building 50 pre-fabricated “Tent Houses” but the service has managed through its own efforts and assistants from other donors to build some of the pre-fabricated “Tent Houses” across the country and they gave examples from Achimota, Kwabenya, Tema, Bawku, Wa, etc. They said apart from the tent houses, some communities have voluntarily provided the service with complete police stations with bungalows for personnel. But they were quick to add that the police accommodation gap is still wide.
