[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Ministry of Home Affairs says while it awaits the outcome of the investigation into the allegation of sexual assault of a young boy by Police Ranks in downtown Georgetown, it is most alarming to that that these accusations come in the wake of an ongoing allegation of sexual assault, yet to be determined.
The statement said it is disturbing that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) while it struggles to regain public confidence the Organization finds itself further embattled due to this alleged despicable act.
“If proven guilty, such elements must be weeded out from the Ranks of the Guyana Police Force. They would not be worthy of wearing Police Uniforms,” the statement added.
Notwithstanding this allegation, the Home Affairs Ministry calls on the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to pay closer attention to its recruitment procedures and screening practices when recruiting civilians into its ranks so as to ensure that perverts are not allowed entry into the Organization.
The Ministry of Home Affairs says it stands ready at all times to assist the Guyana Police Force (GPF) in surmounting its challenges but strongly advise the Force to come to grips with its administrative, and operational deficiencies and to embrace fully the current effort at reforms in the best interest of the Force in particular and the people of Guyana in general.
