THE Guyana Police Force recently received a donation in the form of a Master Trace Kit from Amalgamated Security Services Inc., which will boost the Crime Scene Unit at the Criminal Investigations Department, Eve Leary.
The kit is capable of preserving evidence samples such as: hair, blood, glass etc., for quite a long period.
Dr. Maurice Aboud, a Director and the Chief Forensic and Criminalistics Officer of the Amalgamated Security Services Limited of Trinidad and Tobago, made the presentation to the Commissioner of Police Seelall Persaud in the presence of Crime Chief, Senior Superintendent Wendell Blanhum and other officers of the Force’s Performance Group.
The event was held in the Commissioner’s Conference Room, Eve Leary.
Dr. Aboud, who is a Forensic Scientist and who was accompanied by Mr. Wayne Clarke, Manager of Amalgamated Security Services Inc. in Guyana, told the gathering that the donation was part of his company’s initiative with the Association of the Caribbean Commissioners of Police Programme, whereby every year a forensic kit is handed over to a member country that needs it most and more importantly, he makes the donation personally.
The forensic scientist used the opportunity to do a presentation on a wide range of security services his company offers, which include DNA Testing, Mobile Forensic, Forensic Toxicology and Trace Evidence.
