Home News Police Force’s vehicular capacity boosted
In its continuing efforts to fully equip the Guyana Police Force, the Government of Guyana, through the Public Security Ministry, has made available additional mobile resources in the form of four-wheel and two-wheel vehicles.
While the full complement of these mobile resources is yet to be realised, the supplier has thus far delivered seven All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), three 4×4 pick-ups, and eight motorcycles.
With the thrust of the Force to beef up policing arrangements in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) and in particular in the Rupununi District, additional manpower and increased supervisory capacity have been allocated to the Annai Police Station, which now has five Police Officers stationed there, with two ATVs available.
In E Division (Linden), an additional ATV has been allocated to Mabura Police Station and another one to the Ituni Police Station, while two motorcycles for anti-crime patrols were allocated to Mackenzie Police Station.
With regard to A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara), a new pick-up and four new motorcycles have been allocated for anti-crime patrols.
Meanwhile, C Division (East Coast Demerara) received a new pick-up vehicle to also boost the anti-crime patrols in that division.
Additionally, D Division (West Demerara- East Bank Essequibo) was the recipient of two new motorcycles and a pick-up vehicle, also allocated for anti-crime patrols.
Upon receipt of the other mobile resources from the supplier, further allocations will be made to the various divisions throughout the country.
