In a statement, the Police Service said “recruits training activities have been suspended. Recruits other than the final/passing out squad have been released to go home until further directives.”

“As much as practicable, persons who have been remanded to police custody and those who have committed felonious offenses shall be kept in police cells. Fresh suspects would be screened before they are placed in police custody,” Director of Public Affairs, Superintendent Shiella Kessie Abayie-Buckman said.
