Crime in Guyana is like a stinking cancerous disease, a festering sore, and a blemish to the good name of Guyana and all respectable and caring Guyanese. It can spread and consume the entire body.The government must ensure that the Police are adequately paid, and that they have the necessary equipment to enhance their effectiveness.When the perpetrators of crime are caught, the law must take its course without delay.

Al-Fallujah what exactly are you trying to say that the Government of Guyana is linked to criminal enterprises I would like to know where do u get your facts from the figues are from this years budget. G660m dollars (US132m dollars) will be spent to develop an integrated crime and violence information system to monitor trends in crime and violence.
Accordingly, an additional US1.5m dollars has been allocated for the construction, completion, and rehabilitation of more than 30 police stations countrywide, while US485,000 dollars is allocated for the construction of a juvenile holding centre and for the upgrade of several prisons.

1. Allocating money does not mean the work in being done or going to be done.

2. The Guyana Police Force needs a makeover, too many bribes are being accepted, the chief has a shady past, and last but not least the GPF needs an external investigative unit. The citizens should have confidence in the members of the police force.

3. The Army's problem starts at the top, why did Jagdeo put Best in charge. Is it because of the "don't ask don't tell policy"?

good points...gansta

The Govt. can invest how much money they want, it is still up to the police and Army to do there job and hunt down the criminals.

The point of the issue is, matter how hard the GOG may try to invest and see to it that the police force has efficient equipment needed to extinct the criminals, it is still left up to the police and army to do there job. And when this is not done the blame goes not to the police but on Govt.

Why?

Let me see. Roger Khan, in jail in the US pending drug trafficking charges, admitted link to PPP party and Government. Indians like Dataram and Sugrim, wanted in the US on drug tgrafficking charges, placed on bail by the same Indian Justice, while black Magistrates remand black Oliver Hinckson to prison on a spurious charge.

Buddy an suspected drug trafficker and indicted fuel smuggler given 164 million dollars, the bulk of which forms the retirment savings of the majority black public service, to build a hotel. The Indian prosecutor in his smuggling trial is a frequent patron of the bar in his establishment. The matter is subsequently dismissed, and said prosecutor congratulates the Judge for dismissing the case. Even Don Corleone would have been incredulous over the connections between organized crime and officialdom in Guyana.

Must the Judicial System not be allowed to do their job? It irks when men like Al-fallujah and MR_NO cries on the roof that the Police and the Judicial System must be independent yet he preaches an intervention by the Government to have the charges dropped.

Bring forward the evidence in which you are claiming that Roger Khan admitted to link to the PPP Government.

There should be coordinated communication systems to mobilize the forces, to set up roadblocks, to have aerial surveillance, using cameras and helicopters. Since it is reported that the criminals use machine guns, the police and military must likewise ‘fight fire with fire’.
Community policing should be initiated where citizens form working parties to protect their own communities.

As long as there continues to be criminals link to officers within the police force, there will continue to be corruption within the force.

They had started to do the lie detector test and was successful, i think they should continue and check the entire force.

I agree with you, the joint force also needs officers with high morals and religious beliefs.

The only way we can stop crime in Guyana is not by violent means but by proper intelligence and not a whole lot of propaganda or hear say...

I am delighted to see that the GOG have started to train police officers at the Felix Austin police collage; about the use of computers and the use of intelligence information that is available on the World Wide Web and other police data base around the world.
