Following a week of voting, 56 percent of iNews respondents said they are not satisfied while 37 percent were pleased and a mere seven percent were undecided.

In keeping with its annual practice, the Guyana Police Force shaped another massive plan to ensure that during the Christmas season (December 15 – January 15) the incidents of criminal activities the season brings with it is kept at its minimum, something Police Analyst Leroy Dodson believes the force has done well in the past in.

The 2013 plan deals extensively with ‘A’ Division which according to statistics accounts for 54% of serious crimes resulting from the enormous economic activities that takes place in the Capital City- Georgetown.

Among the hotspot areas identified by police are Ruimveldt, Kitty, Brickdam and East La Penitence. Statistics also show, contrary to popular belief that crimes are committed on individuals and residential areas rather than on businesses.

As such, persons are being urged not to display excessive jewelry, cash and smart phones, walk in groups, use vehicles instead of walking in streets, particularly lonely and dark streets and protect their premises during this season.
