[www.inewsguyana.com] – Traffic wardens will be placed across the country to assist traffic ranks in their pursuit to maintain law and order on the country’s road ways.
The traffic warden programme was launched today at the Stabroek Market Square, in Georgetown by Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee, as part of the 175th anniversary celebration by the Guyana Police Force.
The Home Affairs Minister said this initiative has been long in the making and will greatly assist the Force’s traffic department to deal with its challenges of maintaining roadways. Additionally, the wardens had to undergo a series of trainings and they will be placed at divisions across the country. Rohee believes that the wardens “will contribute significantly to what is already being done by the force”.
He stressed that the force is always looking at new and innovative ways of making its operations more effective and will continue to do this to strengthen the institute.
Government’s commitment was reiterated by Rohee, which will ensure the necessary resources are provided to support the enhancement of policing in Guyana.
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police (ag), Seelall Persaud said the programme will be expanded and the number of traffic wardens will increase across the country to deal with traffic congestion and law and order challenges.
The wardens have already started serving their intended purpose.
