The Finder believes the time has come for the Ghana Police Service to find a way of rebuilding the Service to serve the core mandate for which it was established.
The paper thinks the attacks the service has faced within the past few weeks can be demoralising and wonders whether officers are able to go to work knowing that no matter what they do they would be condemned.
As a way forward, the Finder wants the government to seriously consider insulating the Inspector General of Police, IGP, from political interference.
The officers of the service must also show that they are capable of doing their work without looking over their shoulders.
That way, the general public will accept the officers as law enforcers and not people ready to do the bidding of those in power.
The Ghanaian Times focuses on fire outbreaks and their destructive consequences.
It says such fires could have been contained if the Ghana National Fire Service had wind of them at the very early stages.
For this reason, the paper commends Socio Computers for helping the fire service with back up equipment to enable it to swiftly detect the location of a fire outbreak from their control room.
The Times urges landlords and industries to install these equipment to make the service efficient.
The Heritage says with the construction of the N1 highway, otherwise known as ‘George Bush Highway’, has come, the lack of a safe crossing point for pedestrian in front of the Mallam market.
The Heritage thinks a zebra crossing, traffic light or footbridge would solve the problem.
The Heritage also urges the authorities to make customers at the Mallam market aware of a car park behind the market with sign posts so they do not park at the wrong places.
