The administration's commitment to curb criminal activities saw renewed focus and tactics by the Police Force which resulted in a decrease in several types of criminal activities including firearm robberies.For the first seven months of 2007 the police were able to recover 80 illegal firearms compared to 70 in 2006. 63 persons were charged as compared to 43 in 2006.
The police also recorded a 29% decrease in criminal activities compared to the corresponding period in 2006.

The government of Guyana and the Guyana defense force are trying their best in decreasing the crime rate in Guyana. Mr.Rohee a few days back ensured Guyana that there would be stricken security at Carifesta, trough out the fronts and back lands of the Carifesta ground, to ensure the safety of visitors and all Guyanese.

Crime seems to be moving away from our country.This is because the government had to spend money to set up community policing groups,increase mobile patrols in every part of the country and improve the investigative capabilitity,yet we have people saying that the government is not doing anything to fight crime in this country.

No country in the world can boast that there are crimes free...

I delighted to see that GOG is working assiduously to eliminate crime in our society...

GOG has started training members of the joint services about the use of computers in crime fighting at the Felix Austin Police collage, they also handed over new vehicles to be mobilize in the peruse criminals and the GOG has also bought a helicopter to aid the ground force on the location of criminals. This way first proven to be successful at Christmas falls where Guyana most wanted 'fine man’ and his gang member’s camp site was spotted from an aerial view of that area which led to the demise of some of his gang members in a vicious confrontation between the army and his gang members…

It should be a sin to say that GOG is not doing any thing to stop crime in Guyana…

We must not complain that it took long to capture these criminals, yes it takes time because they are professionals in this, but what we have to take into consideration is that they are caught, caught before striking again, caught before causing pain to our families and loved ones...

We need to co operate with the joint service in the aim to bring down the criminal empire.

Lets us not forget that crime cannot be eradicated with just medium of violences, we need to look at the causes of criminal behavior and seek remedial treatment for individuals suffering such behaviors.

Just jumping the Gun when we finally dethrone the criminal empire what will happen to all the convicted felons
Are they just going to serve time in prison and then return to wreak havoc in our Country?

I don’t like to use the word prison I prefer to use the term “reconcile ional facility”. Survey has shown that many of perpetrators of the law are most of the time illiterate or didn’t have any further education. The GOG has introduce school system in prisons in across our country; both Primary and Secondary schools exam can know be taught and written in prison, where we saw last January two intimates passed the CSEC exam with distinction in Mathematic and in English and GOG are currently implementing a carpentry and masonry classes.

When these convicted criminals have finish paying there debt to society, they will have other avenues to earn an income rather then resorts to there old criminal activates, that’s the true ideology of reconcile ional facilities, after finish servicing time in prison a excriminal can now rejoin society as a change human being with new skills to make him/her a better individual.

Comparing to Trinidad; Guyana is crime free. Trinidad is of the most fearful places one should think of living or visiting within our neighboring boundaries
