Guyana Prison Officers for training in the US

Trotman stated that a delegation from the GPS is expected to travel to the United States to participate in a series of exercises in the mock prison riot which will be held at a decommissioned State penitentiary in the US.

Meanwhile, several other countries are slated to take part in this exercise which is expected to increase the capacity of the GPS to respond to prison unrests.
