The Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu, is promising a robust restructuring of the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) to deliver on its mandate without "reproach."

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the Junior Command Course at the Ghana Police Command and Staff College at Winneba in the Central region, Asante-Apeatu said the department deserves a new look.

The MMTD is mandated to ensure that road users adhere to traffic regulations. However, recent road carnage has opened up the department for criticism.

"Let me assure you that the Ghana Police Service remains committed to enforcing road traffic regulation without fear or favour," the IGP said.

"As part of Ghana Police reformation strategies, the Motor Traffic and Transport Directorate will undergo a robust restructuring."

"The objective is to establish a more professional and civil oriented Motor Traffic and Transport Department that will effectively discharge its mandate without reproach,” he said.

Asante-Apeatu, who was confirmed early this month as the substantive IGP said the MTTD deserves a new look.

"In this regard, I have directed a nationwide internal recruitment, screening, and retraining of all personnel who will constitute the MTTD. When this is done, I’m expecting nothing but world-class police officers, who better serve all of us road users,” he said.

He said a revamped MTTD should be able to deal decisively with recalcitrant and reckless road user.

“I’m expecting a traffic department that will decisively deal with recalcitrant and reckless road users. Above all, I’m expecting a traffic police department that will add more value to our work.”
