The Outgoing Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department, Ghana Police Service, COP Mr. Isaac Ken Yeboah has showered praises on the Ghanaian Media saying his achievements and shortfalls would not have been known without their involvement.

Speaking at his pull-out ceremony, he said "To the media, but for you, my achievements and shortfalls would not have been known"

He added that the constructive criticisms placed him on his toes.

"I am grateful. Name, are you there? Nana and Chairman, God bless you all"

Further showering more praises, COP Ken Yeboah also commended his informants, both genuine and bogus ones.

"Finally, to the Ghana Police Service, I am extremely proud to have served my dear country through this Service. If I am given the opportunity, I will come back. Forever, a Policeman"

In his appreciation message, COP Ken Yeboah said "To IGP (Rtd.) Mr. Patrick Kwarteng Acheampong who taught me that hard work pays. A generous officer, he bought me my first set of furniture.

"Another officer, I would forever be grateful to COP (Rtd) Mr. G.S. Aggor on 25th August 1993, when he was initiating me into the Officers Corp at the Police College, he shook my hand and said to me "if you work hard, you will one day become like me, a Commissioner CID". These words inspired me to strive"
