Police Force to get new air wing
To enhance its capacity and capability, plans are in the pipeline for the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to establish a new air wing.
The announcement was made by Commissioner of Police (ag), Clifton Hicken on Thursday as he outlined some of the Force’s plans while addressing its 184th anniversary awards ceremony.
According to Hicken, two ranks of the Force are being trained as pilots in Miami while another two ranks are at the stage of completing their studies in the field of engineering.
In the coming months, Hicken said the efficiency of the Police Force is expected to be enhanced with the continuous improvement of its infrastructure and resources.
Additionally, he noted that as the Force continues to explore ways in which it can better serve the public, they are on the verge of establishing an E-library, a risk management unit and a Police force committee. There are plans also to restructure the auditing and inspection unit.
