[www.inewsguyana.com] – Deputy Superintendent within the Guyana Police Force, 36 – year – old Shivpersaud Bacchus was today named the best police officer for 2015.
The announcement was made during the annual year end police awards ceremony held at Eve Leary on Wednesday, December 16, 2015. Bacchus is in charge of the computer labs within the Guyana Police Force and is also spearheading several computer classes across the country.
The police officer has been in the Force for the past fifteen years and according to him, he came through the ranks from a Constable to his present rank.
Bacchus explained that he was involved in main stream crime fighting up until the time he was transferred to the Information Technology Lab. Speaking with reporters after the ceremony, he said that Information Technology is very important to crime fighting within the Guyana Police Force.
“It is a tremendous fight because we had in the past the CID dominating this part of the awards and now the IT is changing the pattern. We are looking to better our strategies in terms of crime fighting and operate according to best practices in keeping with the local and international standards,” the Deputy Superintendent said.
As part of the package, Bacchus received $250,000 from the Guyana Police Force and a plaque while private company and police partner Roraima Group of Companies donated a trophy, round trips to the United States and Arrow Point Nature Resort as well as a dinner for two at Duke Lodge.
The second best runner up cop position was awarded to Police Detective Corporal Derwin Eastman from the Guyana Police Force ‘A’ Division who was also awarded as the best cop from that division.
Several other police ranks were awarded for their outstanding performances in the areas of traffic, narcotic fight, crime fighting and service to the community.
In 2014, the Guyana Police awarded its best cop position to Information Technology Specialist, Inspector Jermaine Johnson.
I salute the honest officer for this great achievement.
why only one officer being chosen as best cop?
GPF need to identify all honest men in uniform and reward them, We need to review their salary and improve the working conditions, More vehicles, soft loans and incentives.
