The Ghana Police Service has warned its officers who wear unpermitted clothing for election duties on December 7 that they will be subject to disciplinary proceedings.
The Police in a statement said the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr James Oppong-Boanuh has also directed that no Police Officer wears a beard, except those who have been advised by medical officers not to have a close shave.

However, plain-clothed officers of the Criminal Investigations and Police Intelligence Departments (CID and PID) will wear their approved overt and covert uniforms with their ID cards readily available for identification.

The directives from the IGP follow public enquiries on the police uniforms to be used for this year’s Presidential and Parliamentary Elections after a video made the rounds showing Police Officers seated on a Police Armoured Vehicle.

Speculation on social media suggested that the occupants of the Vehicle were vigilantes but the Police insist the speculations are untrue and unfortunate.

“The persons seen in the video are sworn officers of the Ghana Police Service, who were engaged in special operations of a route march in the Upper East region. The brown uniform and headgear worn by some of them are training apparel,” the statement said.
