The Police High Command has ordered an immediate review of the constabulary's grievance procedures following allegations that cops are being denied promotions because they reject sexual advances of their superiors.

In a statement Friday afternoon, the Police High Command said it takes seriously, the allegations made in the media by cops alleging victimisation.

The High Command said Police Commissioner George Quallo this morning met with members of the high command to discuss the issue and has ordered that a probe be conducted to determine whether the established framework that deals with reports of unfair treatment within the force is working.

It said if the process is not working, steps should be taken to "ensure" the best interest of all members of the force.

The Inspectorate of Constabulary is to oversee the process and report its findings to the Commissioner in 30 days.

"I am reassuring the public that the necessary steps will be taken to ensure that the challenges within the Force are addressed," Quallo said.
