Some officers of the Ghana Police Service are changing the ill perception about the force relating to personnel who either beg or extort money from road users.
One kind-spirited police officer showed kindness to a child and her mother while they were en route from Tema to Agbozume.
According to the social media influencer James Annor Tetteh, known popularly as Nana Tea, the uniformed officer gifted the child GH¢50 (R106) after stopping their vehicle at Tsopoli tollbooth.
''This Police officer changed my perception about Police officers yesterday at Tsopoli tollbooth. After stopping us, he asked us where we were heading and a few other questions. A baby was sitting on her mum's lap. He quickly reached out to his pocket, dished out a GH¢50 note, gave it to the girl, and wished us a safe trip,'' he told Briefly News.
