In a continuous effort to build a good relationship with members of the public, the Guyana Police specifically ranks from B Division visited several schools in New Amsterdam on Friday last (May 12, 2017), with the Police Force Band and provided wholesome entertainment for the students. The exercise which was spearheaded by the Commander of B Division, Ian Amsterdam concluded on the lawns of Banks D.I.H with a pre-Mother’s day concert.
“This is the climax of a series of events that were held throughout the day by the Guyana Police Force military band MS, they are going to the various divisions where they are performing for schools and this morning they were at three schools that is Fort Ordinance Primary, All Saints Primary and St Theresa’s Primary” Amsterdam explained.
This was followed by a concert for mothers later in the evening during which number tags were hidden beneath selected chairs in the audience. Those who were lucky to find a number beneath their seats were provided with hampers and tokens from ranks of B Division at the conclusion of the concert.
“It is an open air concert for members of the public and we are also giving a treat to mothers, so it’s all about entertainment, it’s all about promoting our band, The Guyana Police Force Military Band MS which is moving from division to division organizing concerts and to let people know that the band is alive and well” the B Division Commander said.
