DPI, Guyana, Sunday, December 15, 2019

A relationship between the Guyana Police Force and the communities in which it has taken an oath to both serve and protect are of immense importance. This was stated by Minister of Public Security Hon. Kemraj Ramjattan during an interview on Radio Orealla 95.1 FM, on Saturday.

“I want my policemen to be big brothers in these communities,” the Minister asserted as listeners were briefed on various security initiatives that will be rolled out in the community of Orealla; many of which have already begun.

Top on the agenda is the realisation of the full reconstruction of the police outpost in the community. Additionally, Minister Ramjattan pledged to boost the crime-fighting efforts in the village with the provision of a police boat service that will work between Skeldon and Orealla.

All-terrain vehicles will also be handed over to the community after the rehabilitation of the internal roads is completed. That road project is currently being executed by the Ministry of Public Infrastructure.

To further enhance relations between law enforcement and civilians, Minister Ramjattan underscored the need for residents to join the Guyana Police Force. In this regard, the Public Security Minister said the Officer-in-Charge at Skeldon will visit the community to conduct job interviews.

Minister Ramjattan’s visit to Orealla was executed alongside Minister of Public Telecommunications Hon. Catherine Hughes and Minister of Public Infrastructure, Hon. David Patterson. The ministers updated residents on government projects and listened to their concerns while offering suggestions
