Police Marine security boosted; Baramani Coast Guard Patrol Vessel restored
Minister of Home Affairs, Hon. Robeson Benn, yesterday restored the Marine Vessel (MV) Baramani of the Guyana Police Force Marine Department Ruimveldt. The Vessel will be used to boost the marine security along the Demerara River and ensure safety and security on the waterways.
The MV Baramani is an enclosed vessel which will help the Guyana Police Force to increase patrols on the waterways in varied weather conditions. The vessel which was not operable since 2018, was restored at the cost of $3.7million. Minister Benn commissioned the vessel to its full operation at the Ruimveldt Police Port in the presence of Deputy Commission of Police Operations, Mr. Clifton Hicken and team.
MV Baramani will be used to patrol the mouth of the Demerara River to Dora as well as both sides of the river, providing security in conjunction with other stakeholders.
