The U.S. Embassy, in collaboration with Emerging Public Leaders, have initiated training sessions for public servants within Ghana’s public safety sector.

The Professionals Engaged Against Conflict & Endangerment (PEACE) program, executed by Emerging Public Leaders in Ghana, is set to offer comprehensive professional growth and leadership courses to 25 public servants over the course of a year.

Aligned with the United States Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability, the program aims to enhance the quality of government services in Northern Ghana.

“One of the best ways to prevent conflict and support peace is to improve the delivery and reach of public services. That’s one reason we’re investing in our partnership with Ghana’s public servants,” said U.S. Embassy Press Attaché Kevin Brosnahan at this week’s launch.

The program kicked off in March 2024, offering online professional development and training sessions to more than 100 public safety professionals across different ministries and government agencies.

Out of this group, 25 exceptional public servants have been chosen for the year-long PEACE fellowship. Throughout the upcoming year, they will delve into the finest techniques for enhancing security-civilian relationships, reinforcing public safety and security measures, fostering trust and rapport within local communities, and contributing to conflict prevention efforts in the Upper East, North East, and Northern regions of Ghana.

The participants include employees of the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Ambulance Service, Ghana Immigration Service, and Ghana Fire Service drawn from the Upper East, North East, and Northern Regions of Ghana. The Foundation for Security and Development in Africa (FOSDA) and the Ministry of Interior are partners in the program.

Through the multi-year implementation of the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability, the U.S. Government is working across Coastal West Africa to promote social cohesion, inclusive economic growth, and accountable governance with at-risk communities in order to prevent conflict.
