our fallen heroes

Constable Michael Kporyi

Lance Corporal Robert Ackah

It’s not always easy or “convenient” being a police officer, but it is a noble calling.  And the Ghana is fortunate that the members of our police service are all honourable men and women, dedicated to serving and protecting the citizens of our community.  They sacrifice of their time, their talents….and sometimes their very own lives.

On this page we honour several brave and dedicated men from the Ghana Police Service: men and women who – in dangerous situations – were reaching out to help those in need of their services and ultimately paid the ultimate sacrifice.  It is with great honor that we dedicate this section to them – to let their families know that who they were, and what they stood for, remains steadfast in our hearts and our minds.  We are proud to call them our brothers and sisters. We will be forever thankful that they chose to serve their country.
