Police Chief Inspector Becomes First Beneficiary of the Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund (PEMIF)

When Chief Inspector Mac-Victor Anako was flown to Germany for medical treatment, he became the first police officer to benefit from the recently established 6.1 million Cedis Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund. 

The PEMIF is a Police Administration project that provides financial support for the medical care of police personnel who are injured in the course of duty. 

The Fund was approved and established in January 2022 by Ghana's President, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who made a personal donation to support it at the time. 

Following the implementation of the PEMIF, Chief Inspector Mac-Victor Anako was flown to Hamburg, Germany to have a new prosthetic leg fitted to let him move around. His wife accompanied him on the journey to provide him with the necessary support. 

The Police Administration covered the entire cost of the vacation and treatment with funds from the PEMIF. 

On March 30, 2022, the Chief Inspector returned to Ghana with his wife at his side, sporting his new prosthetic leg and walking with ease. 

During an anti-robbery operation in Nsawam in May 2007, Chief Inspector Mac-Victor Anako was wounded by armed thieves. He was shot in the left thigh and had to have his leg amputated as a result.

In 2010, the Chief Inspector underwent various surgical treatments, but complications arose, demanding additional medical attention. 

Two more Police officers who are Fund recipients are also having medical treatment. 

The Police Administration prioritizes the health and well-being of its staff and will continue to give financial assistance to officers in need through the Emergency Medical Intervention Fund.
