[www.inewsguyana.com] – Children of Rosemary Lane (Tiger Bay) and Albouystown yesterday [Saturday, August 09] concluded a week long camping exercise conducted by the police in ‘A’ Division.

The camp, which was held along the Linden Highway, saw the children being involved in several activities both outdoor and indoor as well as classroom sessions.

At the closing ceremony, all Sub-Divisional Station Officers within ‘A’ Division were present along with the Traffic Officer and Commander, Clifton Hicken.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Balram Persaud, who was performing the duties of Commissioner of Police, wished the children well in the putting into practice the knowledge they gained at the camp.

The Senior police officer told the children that like diamond, they need to be taken out of their various places of origin and be polished and groomed to become what they want to be and that is a process that takes time and commitment especially to those willing to invest in them.
