Although the year 2015 had brought its own challenges to the Guyana Police Force (GPF) the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) operations last year coupled with the GPF’s Social Crime Prevention Programme had ‘served to reduce fear of crime’ in the country.

Commissioner of Police, Seelall Persaud says the Guyana Police Force was able to reduce fear of crime in the country in 2015.

This is according to Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud who at the recently held Police Officers’ Annual Conference stated that the Force was able to make a number of significant successful strides in 2015 and as such this year is looked forward to with ‘great optimism’.

He posited that it was through the cultivation of ‘strong partnerships’ that the GPF was better able to serve communities in need, thereby increasing public safety and public trust.

Meanwhile, Head of State, David Granger noted that he was very proud of the work that the GPF has been doing in 2016 thus far as he congratulated the Force on its ability to solve crimes more quickly than before as well as the changes that it has embarked upon.

He declared that his Government is fully committed to providing the GPF with what it needs to keep Guyana safe, including the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), to ensure that investigations are not interrupted or delayed.

  2. Mr Seelall and his senior officers seem to have been pressuring their backsides with their over weight pot belly frame in their air onditioned offices but suddenly found some urgency since the granger led PNC administration assumed office. What was stopping them to go after the criminals pre granger? This clearly shows how partisan the GPF is at the expense of the ordinary hard working citizens.

  3. Regardless of what Guyana is still a very dangerous country with a high crime rate. So many overseas based Guyanese do not wish to go to Guyana as one has to constantly be looking over their shoulders.

  4. PERSAUD and RAMJATTAN should be inducted into the WORLD hall of shame to openly state lies on the time to the local Guyanese people…Since the PNC took office, the power was placed in the hands of their supporters to loot…Since most of them are lazy and like easy money….Take a look at the stats…Crime is above 20% and this man come on the news and lie to the public….what a JOKE! He is only doing this because of fear being sacked…..Back to the burhnam days where dictatorship is @ its prime…..
