Twice adjudged Guyana’s Best Cop, Assistant Superintendent of Police; Mitchell Novah Ceasar, was recently named the ‘First runner-up Caribbean Crime Fighter of the Year. He was among several other police detectives from around the Caribbean region who were competing for the coveted award.
During an interview, earlier today, with the man who was at the forefront of solving the Babita Sarjou and Nesha Gopaul murder cases, among others, Ceasar told INews that the award was presented to Guyana’s top sleuth by the Amalgamated Security Service Limited, in conjunction with the Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police.
Senior Superintendent and Crime Chief, Wendell Blanhum had nominated Ceasar for the top award. A Senior Police Officer from Trinidad and Tobago was adjudged the Caribbean’s best crime fighter.
The humbled Parika resident was enlisted into the Guyana Police Force on February 29, 1992 as a Constable, and due to his outstanding performances over the years he steadily climbed the ranks and is now serving as the Head of the Major Crimes Investigation Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
Ceasar was adjudged Best Cop in Guyana on two prior occasions. He has been a leading crime investigator for over twenty years, having joined the force at the age of 18.
As a result of his hard work in the Guyana Police Force, criminal gangs which were involved in high-profile crimes were dismantled and persons were charged and brought before the Courts for various offences. Ceasar has also led several operations within Guyana during which a number of firearms, ammunition, drugs and stolen articles were recovered.
