John Kudalor sworn-in as IGP
COP John Kudalor has been sworn-in as the substantive Inspector General of Police by President John Mahama at a ceremony at the Flagstaff House Friday.
Mr. Kudalor has been acting in that capacity since his appointment in November last year.
Addressing the ceremony, President Mahama called on the Police Service to continue to work with other responsible agencies to reduce the occurrence of road accidents.
“60 of our compatriots, who died in the accident on the Kintampo road, I believe that the Police Service is working with the National Road Safety Commission to continue to do its best to see how we can bring down the rate of vehicle accidents,” President Mahama said.
COP Kudalor assured the President of the commitment of the service to ensuring that the law is adhered to in every situation.
“With this ghastly incident happening, which is one too many, we are going to go back to the board and ensure that our men on the road also implement the law to its letter to ensure that lives are saved.”
Until his appointment, COP John Kudalor was Director General of Police Operations, a position he held for more than three years.
Kudalor has a 20-year wealth of experience in the police service and was in charge of monitoring in the 2012 general elections.
He replaces Mohammed Alhassan who has commenced his accumulated leave as he prepares to go on retirement.
