Police get lights from Crown Mining
Today Crown Mining handed over a quantity of lights to aid the police operations during stop and search and high-speed pusuits in certain dark areas at nights.
Maherdra Persaud managing director of the company said this donation was prompted from what he saw during a police stop and search one night.
Commander of A division Clifton Hicken said the donation was timely. Hicken said the force is well aware that certain areas are poorly lit and the lights will serve its purpose in the police fight against crime.
The Guyana Police Force overtime has been working to develop a better relationship between the police and the community. The force over the years has come in for harsh criticism in their approach to crime fighting.
