Six outstanding Law Enforcement Officers from the Guyana Police Force ‘B’ Division on Sunday last were specially honoured when the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, M.S hosted their first ever “Tribute to Policemen”
programme in conjunction with the ‘B’ Division of the Guyana Police Force and Food for the Poor (Guy) INC. The honouring of the law enforcement officers is a part of a Say No to Crime programme between the Police Force and Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation.
The two organisations in 2014 launched the joint programme under the leadership of Asst Commissioner Brian Joseph and since then has worked together to make a positive difference in the lives of less fortunate youths. To date they have donated sports and educational equipment to Clubs and schools, donating $500,000 worth of school bags and $300,000 worth of footwear to students and has also made a donation to the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost. The six officers honoured were Corporal 20697 P. Wilburgh, Corporal 17200 D. Blair, Constable 21179 Melville, Special Constable 18403 Fraser and Corporal 21415 Narine. The Awardees were selected based on their personal discipline, performance on duty, commitment and public image.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster noted that the joint cooperation between the two dynamic organisations is much needed as Guyana Police Force alone cannot be expected to stop crime and the factors that contribute to social ills.
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, MS despite its very hectic list of activities would continue to work closely with the GPF and he offered congratulations to the honoured policemen for the high standard of their service. He told them that because of their dedication, Berbicians have developed confidence in the Force and can sleep at night with confidence.
Foster also disclosed that the RHTYSC, MS cricket teams and the Police Force ‘B’ Division would be working together shortly on a massive Traffic Education Campaign, the 2nd Edition of the Edward B. Beharry Co. Ltd Say No to Suicide and Yes to Education campaign and the hosting of several sports events. These would include football, basketball, volleyball and cricket tournaments for youths in Crime affected areas such as Angoy’s Avenue, Fyrish, Tain, Rose Hall Town and Hopetown.
Commander in Chief of Guyana’s armed Forces and Executive President of Guyana, David Granger, handed over the awards to the six officers along with ‘B’ Division Commander Ian Amsterdam. Each of the awardees received a Trophy, a Medal of Excellence and a collection of gifts. The Club would like to express gratitude to Food for the Poor (Guy) INC and Sueria Manufacturing for their support of the programme.
