Strategies for Combating White-Collar Crimes in Ghana

Emmanuel Erastus Yamoah

Abstract


This study sought to review the incidence of white-collar crime in Ghana. White-collar crime is a non-violent crime perpetuated by an individual in order to obtain financial gain. The study concludes that this phenomenon is on the increase in Ghana and authorities must work untiringly in order to curtail the effects on society. This study adds to literary knowledge on white-collar crime in general and the Ghanaian situation in particular. It is also hoped that the strategies highlighted will be useful to the appropriate investigative and law enforcement agencies in the fight against this evil in society.
