EOCO to retrieve misappropriated money

The Executive Director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Commissioner of Police (COP) Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Dankwa, says her outfit is working to retrieve misappropriated money captured in the Auditor General’s report.

She said it was part of EOCO’s mandate to investigate and where possible retrieve monies lost as reported by the Auditor General.

COP Addo-Dankwa, who was speaking at the office of the Savannah Regional Coordinating Council as part of her working visit to the region, said “When you look at the Auditor General’s report, every year when it comes out, we don’t let it go like that.

We take it district by district, item by item, and we look at how we can recover some of the issues raised in the Auditor General’s report.”

She said EOCO also investigates and prosecutes, on behalf of the Attorney General, people identified by the Auditor General to have committed offences.

“Where we need to investigate further, we will. Those we can recover for government, we will. These are ways we can work together for our mutual benefit,” COP Addo-Dankwa said.

She urged female police to give out their best to justify the recruitment of more women into the Ghana Police Service.

DCOP Addo-Dankwasaid currently, females constituted 29 per cent of personnel of the service, adding that “if the females work hard enough, the service would have reason to take more females to meet the United Nations (UN) ratio of 40 per cent.
