According to the GPF, the initiatives include capacity building in the Criminal Investigation Department that is now manifested in perpetrators of high profile crimes being arrested within two to three days of their occurrence.

That situation coupled with the social crime prevention programme and our anti-crime patrol systems as well as Government policy initiatives are developing the public trust and reducing the fear of crime in the Guyanese society, the police force said.

According to the police force, its partnership programmes with civil society organisations and its collaboration with local and foreign law enforcement agencies have also served to strengthen its capacity.

The release further said that presently 12 Assistant Superintendents of the Police Force are attached to the Dade County Police, in Miami, for a period of three weeks. This training is likely to expose them to a First World approach on designing tactics and delivering on frontline functions.

It added that for the year 33 members of the force have received training overseas in various aspects of law enforcement, inclusive of a three-month course in Cyber Crime in India, a three-month course in Advanced Fingerprint Technology, also in India, and an Advanced Crime Scene Investigation Course, in Russia.

Further, the force said locally another batch of 34 new entrants to the Criminal Investigation Department has completed a six-week training programme. This adds to 24 ranks who completed an Intelligence Gathering and Analysis Course, 20 ranks who participated in a Narcotics Investigators Course, and another 35 who attended a programme on National Protocols for Child Advocacy Centres Multi-disciplinary Teams.      Source:
