Corps of wardens will be specially trained to police mining areas- Granger
In an effort to strengthen security, a corps of wardens will be trained who will be working in the mining areas to crack down on the reported “lawlessness” that takes place in those communities.
This was disclosed by President David Granger on Thursday on the television programme “The Public Interest.”
The President acknowledged that there needs to be more policing in the country’s forested areas since certain behaviour there has led to murders and fatal accidents.
“We already have a concept paper on the development of a corps of wardens who would be working mainly in the extractive industries and the tourist industry in the Hinterland…that will come on stream after they are trained and properly equipped, they will come generally come under the Police Force, under the Police Act, but they will perform specialized functions in those areas, ” President Granger said.
He alluded to the presence of mounted police in the Hinterland and pointed to the inclusion of rural constables.
