THE Guyana Police Force (GPF) is in discussions with a donor country to ensure that every police station has a vehicle dedicated to patrolling the areas that fall within the purview of the respective stations. In the case of the coastland and interior locations, vehicles will be provided, while in the riverine areas boats will be provided.
This was announced by Commissioner of Police Seelall Persaud on Saturday, while addressing a ceremony for those who completed several police training courses.
The announcement was made in the presence of senior and junior members of the force as well as relatives of the young men and women who graduated from the courses.
According to the Top Cop, the initiative will be realised by the end of this year.
Meanwhile, Persaud also announced a plan by the GPF to look after the welfare of children of policemen and women who died in the line of duty. This initiative is being supported by at least one businessman so far.
Commissioner Persaud explained that at the moment, the Cops and Faith Network in association with the local businessman are seeking to establish a non-profit organisation that will be dedicated to funding the education and general welfare of children of police ranks killed in the line of duty.
That, he said, will commence later this month. Already, the GPF has a system which caters for the welfare of dependants of fallen ranks of the force. With this new fund however, the police are expected to be able to cater even more for those persons and provide additional assistance for them.
The gathering was told that the police are seeing dividends from its investments, in the area of criminal investigation and crime prevention in communities.
