[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Police Force is looking at several new methods of transporting or escorting persons with large sums of cash from one location to another. While the details of the new plan were not revealed, the business community of Georgetown was informed of this by Commander of the ‘A’ Division, Clifton Hicken.
Hicken was at the time meeting with the business community as part of a follow up meeting at the Division Headquarters in Georgetown.
The members of the business community were reminded that it is advisable for them to inform the police in advance whenever they intend to have transactions with large sums of cash so that protection can be provided.
They were reminded of the reality of many business persons and ordinary civilians losing millions of dollars because they carried large sums with the view that no one was aware.
Hicken informed that a meeting is being convened with the private security firms to address the issue from a holistic view. [Leroy Smith]
