“It is the demonstration of the understanding of your roles, purpose and responsibilities. It is and must be seen as a reward the unconditional serving and maintenance of zealously guarding our ideal,” James said.

“Your stellar performance has merited your effort to embrace the old standard. We must never retreat from challenging ourselves,” the Top Cop added.

According to James, over the last year, the GPF has worked assiduously to maintain public security, public safety trust and confidence of the public. “We must continue to win their trust among the citizenry through exemplary conduct and professionalism,” he underscored

The Top Cop also highlighted that the GPF completed the first year of its strategic management plan and have also established a Police Reform Change Board to coordinate the strategic plan.

It was pointed out that there has been a decrease in serious crime but an eight percent increase in road fatalities. To combat that, the Commissioner said that operation ‘safe roads’ is currently in effect countrywide.
