[www.inewsguyana.com] – To mark its one year anniversary with the renewed approach towards building public trust, the Guyana Police Force through its ‘A’ Division commander and members of that division’s management will host a youth exposition Sunday March 29 commencing at 11:00hrs at Thirst Park, Georgetown.
The main focus of the exposition will be showcasing the art and craft of young people which the police have been working with over the past years.. Those exhibits will also be up for sale in an effort to sustain the youth groups with funds generated.
Commander Clifton Hicken told iNews that the police force has enjoyed working with the communities through the formation of youth groups over the last years and noted that those efforts were largely successful since the police did not impose itself on communities but rather adopted a collaborated approach.
There will be eleven youth groups brought together from different communities with each of them showcasing different aspects of what they have learnt.
According to Hicken, while the Guyana Police Force is reforming itself, it is also working to ensure that it reforms the youth. Hicken also spoke of targeting High School children and the police will be playing lead roles in organizing projects and identifying areas of possible cooperation.
The Commander called on members of the public to support the exposition on Sunday.
