Fifty six crime officers drawn from the various regions to undergo a two weeks training course in crime investigations have completed.
The officers were taken through subjects including statement taking, money laundering, interviewing of suspects and victims, cyber crime, human trafficking, police ethics and procedures, case tracking management and the police service instruction.
At the closing ceremony held at the Detective Training Academy (DTA), the Deputy Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department, Assistant Commissioner of Police, George Tweneboah, who addressed participants, urged them to retain what they have been taught and apply them in the discharge of their duties.

Courses change lives even if it is a day, so let the police administration see the change in you.”
