A recent “clampdown” campaign by the Guyana Police Force’s Traffic Department resulted in the arrest of 17 touts.
They were charged on April 8, 2019, police said.
This exercise was conducted by Sergeant 18039 Michael Ramdas and ranks of Traffic Headquarters at the bus parks of Routes 31, 32, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 and 72.
“The Department continues to address the challenges commuters are currently facing at the parks,” GPF noted in a press release.
Traffic Chief, Senior Superintendent Linden Isles sternly stated: “this exercise is aimed to rid the parks of all touts and as such the public cooperation is critical.”
According to the police, this campaign will be ongoing until the desired results are achieved.
So far, over 100 touts have been arrested and charged.
