Japarts makes donation to Guyana Police Force
Having heard the story of a young serving member of the Guyana Police Force being struck down at a roadblock, one city businessman has come forward with a donation, which will in some way reduce the risk of more cops being injured in the same manner.
Yesterday, Chief Executive Officer for Japarts, Terry Singh, made a donation of a quantity of illuminated vests and spotlights to the Commissioner of Police.
Singh said that he was saddened by the incident at the roadblock and as such, he was moved to make the donation.
Almost a month ago, a Tactical Service Unit Rank, Sherwin Richardson, was struck down at a roadblock. Richardson remains hospitalised in a critical condition.
Singh further stated that a cheque for $100,000 will be given to the Force. This money, he said, will go towards the painting of the police lock-ups.
He thanked the Guyana Police Force for the continuous services at both their interior and city locations.
Commissioner of Police, Henry Greene, said that the donation was a very timely one. He said that the donation will go mainly to the Tactical Service Unit where it is most needed. He further called on other members of the business community to come forward and do same.
