COP Boakye’s time in service was characterized by selfless dedication to fighting crime, particularly armed robbery which won him the hearts of Ghanaians.

In 2005, as an ACP, the retiring COP led a squad of officers from the Greater Accra Regional Police Command to apprehend the notorious armed robber, Ataa Ayi, and some members of his gang, making him a household name across the country.
