[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Police Force through its various divisions continues to spread early Christmas cheer to children across the country.

Recently, the Brickdam Police Station and its Station Management Committee entertained close to four hundred children from the community of Tiger Bay.

The day’s event saw a number of dances, songs, poems, drama and the distribution of gifts which were donated by the Guyana Police Force and members of the business community.

Speaking at the event, ‘A’ Division Commander, Clifton Hicken revealed plans the police have in store for the community in 2015.

He said that more focus will be placed on having the children participate in life skills training and other developmental activities in partnership with the private sector.

He added that the talents which were displayed at the event has brought to the police attention the need to work even harder to create a network of young people from various communities who share talents in the same disciplines so that they can learn from each other.

The police have since held parties in the communities of Grove and Mocha, East Bank Demerara and are looking to do the same over the next couple of days in communities including Agricola and Werk-en-Rust in Georgetown.
