They include 49 graduates and 314 recruits with other certificates.
The recruits took the oath of enlistment and the oath of secrecy.
The Regional Police Commander, DCOP Mr Edward Oduro Kwateng welcomed the recruits to the Training School and intimated that they count themselves privileged to be at the best Centre; since the school produced the overall best recruits, two consecutive times in the last Standardized Recruit Final Examination.
He entreated the recruits to be humble and commit their time to their studies and other non-academic training for “battles are only won after hard training’ to become effective police officers.
The Commanding officer for the school, Chief Superintendent Mr William Yankee Acolatse encouraged the recruits to be disciplined and uphold the regulations of the school. He was quick to remind them of the institution’s stance on undisciplined behaviour, “ the school will not tolerate recalcitrant recruits and will not hesitate to dismiss anyone who flouts any of our rules” He also reminded the recruits to be guided by the COVID-19 protocols in the school.
Some recruits expressed their joy and praised the level of discipline in the school. They were also happy about the serene atmosphere within which they would be trained.
The Regional Police Training School, Ho was officially opened on August 18, 1961, for the training of Local Authority staff. Seven years after, the formal training of 64 Police recruits started in the school in 1968. The school has since produced a good deal of recruits who excelled in diverse areas to occupy top management positions in the Service.
