The Guyana police force is taking a firm stand to help combat transnational crime.
The Guyana police force is taking a firm stand to help combat transnational crime as persons continue to slip into this country through our porous borders and through the Chaddie Jagan international airport.
When the issue was raised by this news cast with the acting commissioner of Police Leroy Brummel he said that as long as the information is provided by those countries in which the offences were committed his ranks will take the necessary steps to bring those seeking a hideout here to justice.
One of the issues that comes to mind is the murder of a Trinidad teen in the twin island republic a few weeks ago and it is believed that the suspect who is a Guyanese by birth may have committed the act, but the suspect managed to elude local law enforcement agencies here. There is also the case involving a US citizen with Guyanese connections who is alleged to have murdered another man and fled that jurisdiction, via Canada and landed at CJIA.
The commissioner is hoping to use the technology available to the Guyana police force to have a hands on approach to arrest those who are flouting the laws in other countries and are hiding here.
Overtime it has proven difficult to have those persons extradited to the countries in which they have committed the offences be it for murder or drug trafficking.
