Several RCs sworn-in during Day Three of NTC
Georgetown, GINA, October 23, 2013
Close to 100 Toshaos, senior councillors, Community Development Councillors (CDC) chairmen and women and other Amerindian Leaders were today sworn in and administered the oath of office of Rural Constable (RC) by Assistant Commissioner of Operations, George Vyphius at the National Toshaos Council at the Guyana International Conference Centre.
The new RCs will function as peace officers, mediators, negotiators and mentors, playing the ancillary role of supporting the efforts of ranks of the Guyana Force in maintaining law and order in their respective communities.
RCs have the authority to conduct stop and search activities on vehicles and boats and make arrests once those suspicions have been confirmed.
