Constables 21820 Warren Duncan, 22647 Quacy Morian and W. 23949 Alita Moore travelled to Grenada to represent the Force in the Championship games and all emerged medalists,” the Force said in a press release on Tuesday.

Constable Duncan came in first place in the Shot Put and Discuss competitions and third in the Javelin competition.
“It must be noted that the event which was initially slated for Police also saw participation of National, (Non-Military) athletes as well; resulting in the ranks competing with seasoned athletes for the championship. The Guyanese delegation which consisted of Police Coach, Sergeant 13768 Lyndon Wilson and the three athletes was invited to take part in several youth and community outreach programmes while in Grenada” the Force further stated in the release.
It added, “The Guyana Police Force continues to offer exposure for its ranks in different fields, through bilateral relations shared with its counterparts. The Force has presented several platforms for empowerment; one such initiative is the continuous Capacity Building Seminars held in the various Divisions countrywide.”
