US report dubs Guyana ‘Critical threat location’ for crime

…says Govt corruption widespread
…Police officers ‘paid off’ by by criminal elements 

A 2018 U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory, released by the OSAC has advised Americans travelling to Guyana to exercise normal precautions but advised that the crime situation is “critical.”

“The U.S. Department of State has assessed Georgetown as being a CRITICAL-threat location for crime directed at or affecting official U.S. government interests” the report said.

According to the report, criminal activity continues to be a major issue. Highlighting that serious crimes (murder, armed robbery) are common, OSAC said “the most recent information from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime lists Guyana’s 2013 homicide rate as 20.4 per 100,000 people — the third highest murder rate in South America (behind Colombia and Brazil) and five times higher than that of the U.S.”

It was outlined that armed robberies, including carjacking, occur regularly, especially in businesses and shopping districts. Moreover, armed robberies of business/patron establishments occur frequently in Georgetown.

“While criminals regularly use weapons, despite a rigorous licensing requirement to own firearms. Handguns, knives, machetes, or cutlasses tend to be the weapons of choice. Criminals may act brazenly, and police officers have been both victims and perpetrators of assaults and shootings. Criminals are increasingly willing to resort to violence while committing all types of crimes. Criminals are often organized, travel in groups of two or more, and conduct surveillance on their victims. Criminals generally will not hesitate to show multiple weapons as an intimidation tactic during a robbery.”

Addressing the Police response to the crimes, the report outlines that “the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has resource and manpower limitations that inhibit its ability to deter or respond to criminal activity. Even on the occasions when the GPF responds to a crime scene, victims are asked to go to the nearest police station to file a report and complete other investigative formalities. Confidence in the GPF is low due to the public’s perception of heavy handedness, ineffectiveness, and corruption.”

The report says that while the fire department generally provides a timely response, the “police response, especially during the night, is less dependable. The police response to emergency calls is often slow (15+ minutes) or not at all.”

Guyana 2018 Crime & Safety Report

According to the current U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory at the date of this report’s publication, Guyana has been assessed as Level 1: exercise normal precautions.

 

https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2018/01/276945.htm

On January 10, 2018, the Department of State launched improvements to how we share information with U.S. travelers. These improvements will provide U.S. citizens with clear, timely, and reliable safety and security information worldwide. Under the new system, every country will have a Travel Advisory, providing levels of advice ranging from 1 to 4:

  • Level 1 - Exercise Normal Precautions: This is the lowest advisory level for safety and security risk. There is some risk in any international travel. Conditions in other countries may differ from those in the United States and may change at any time.
  • Level 2 - Exercise Increased Caution: Be aware of heightened risks to safety and security. The Department of State provides additional advice for travelers in these areas in the Travel Advisory. Conditions in any country may change at any time.
  • Level 3 - Reconsider Travel: Avoid travel due to serious risks to safety and security. The Department of State provides additional advice for travelers in these areas in the Travel Advisory. Conditions in any country may change at any time.
  • Level 4 - Do Not Travel: This is the highest advisory level due to greater likelihood of life-threatening risks. During an emergency, the U.S. government may have very limited ability to provide assistance. The Department of State advises that U.S. citizens not travel to the country or leave as soon as it is safe to do so. The Department of State provides additional advice for travelers in these areas in the Travel Advisory. Conditions in any country may change at any time.




 

Here is the true report,not that half baked from Inews the mouth piece of doomsday opposition crew,they fail to mention Guyana is at Level 1.

Maybe the fools think Level 1,is the worst place to travel to.

That's why I suggested to that clown that prioritywise we need more policing instead of a militia. Start an Auxiliary Police force or something to that effect.

This was during the PPP years when the murder rate was out of control. It was even worse when Jagdeo was the President.

In 2013, there were 154 murders for the year.

In 2017, it was down to 116, a vast improvement. 25% decrease.

We need to be serious about crime prevention that is all. We need beat cops, constant patrols and better communications and response times. We need Cameras at every exit points and an active criminal database that is accessible on the fly. We also  need trained criminalists and a dna lab. These are issues that could have been tackled in the PPP era but their neglect here is also astounding.

The justice system is a joke. Guyana needs a judiciary that is free of bias. Currently the Granger admin. is focusing on victimizing political adversaries rather than reducing crime.

Three years going and they are yet to get their sea legs. But what are we talking about. The PPP never found theirs.

I do hope the APNU are able to make some sound cases against those crooks. It would set a precedent.

The PPP's effort to reduce crime was thwarted by Hoyte and his party. The draping of Blackie's coffin and the open support for criminals gangs in Buxton remain irrefutable evidence of the PNC's involvement n crime as a political weapon against the PPP and the Indo-Guyanese population.

Good government and good leadership lead. It means worthy leaders have the ability to make social actors move in ways they did not intend but that produce salutary effects.

Indeed Hoyte was as all guyanese leaders of poor caliber. The PPP did not do much to ameliorate the discontent and suspicions in his community. Instead the consolidated their friends and patronage system, neglected constitutional reform and in the end created a fiercely divided society that now is clearly cut along ethnic lines.

APNU, like the PPP is following the same trajectory. Tholhere is no other option but for a third party intervention. I do not know that the present one can cut it but  The reality is that the PPP or the PNC means our people will remain divided and our nations coffers an open grab bag for whatever party holds office.

You do not get to define what is the truth. Guyana is a hellhole of ethnic strife and the reason it is so is because of lack of leaders. Each side has their special dog whistle to attack their servile dog pack and  they take up a defensive stands never giving ground. The result is the caustic racism that produces old never learning bigots like you.

Have you ever heard me saying anyone here is lesser than me because of their race? Have you seen me assert that one group can perform task x better than another because of race? No. That is you. I simply comment on the ills of both so you racists creeps do not get the traction you think you can have else this place would be more than the racist cesspool it sometimes is. 

And what other member calls me out? UGLI our resident ship brahamin who give us a thesis on the shortcomings of the black man by virtue of his color on a regular basis? Get real you old crow. Looking for support from  the brotherhood and sisterhood of  supremacists would not cut it.
