Police Seek Divine Protection Against Killing of Officers

The Religious Affairs Directorate (RAD) of the Ghana Police Service is holding intensive prayers to seek the face of God for the “safety and divine protection” of the leadership and officers of the service.

Services are therefore expected to be held in all Police Churches on Sunday, February 4, 2018 in the morning.

A letter inviting the Police Management Board to the services, signed by the ACP Very Rev. Fr. George Arthur, Director/RAD said “this has become very necessary and imperative considering the recent spate of adversarial killings of serving Officers.”

The letter acknowledged that in as much as the police administration is putting together resources, expertise knowledge, experiences and the appropriate mechanism in place to avert future occurrences, “it behoves upon us as the Clergy of the Service to beseech divine protection for all serving officers.”

V. Rev. Fr. Arthur said the clergy are “highly convinced that with divine intervention, the recent death shadow cast on the police administration would reduce, if not wane out”.

He commended the leadership and officers for showing concern to the welfare of serving officers in times of sickness, difficult moments, deaths among others.

“On our part, we the Clergy of the Service will not relent our intercessory and Pastoral roles for the Police Administration,” he pledged.

The church services come on the back of the latest killing of a police inspector at Kwabenya in the Greater Accra region last week.
