Berbice Police over the past six months have been partnering with members of the community in an effort to remove persons who have been trafficking in illegal drugs. Over that period, more than 20 persons have been successfully prosecuted for the offence.

Former Commander of B (Berbice) Division, Assistant Commissioner Christopher Griffith in October last year had called on members of the public to partner with the Police in the fight against illegal drugs. Back then, he said any information which the Police receive would be treated with confidence.






  1. Does the Guyana Police Force have the man power to constantly arresting people holding marijuana? unlike cocaine, crack or any other type of PCP drug, arrests for carrying marijuana, unless it’s in bulk, should cease now.
