  1. keep the raids up and go into the villages u suspects the most illegalities taking place despite what emile mervin the pnc advocate say to go into indian villages even though the evidence does not lead there

  2. Great work GPF, this is what needs to be done more often, to reduce the crime rate and reestablish the respect for the service. I have always held the GPF in high regards. Since in the 90’s after it was plagued with corrupt officers some dead and a few still remain, I have not lost confidence in you. So let’s step up and stand up Officers and reclaim your position in this great nation of ours. PS: I had relatives and family that served.
