The Guyana Police Force (GPF) “A” Division Youth Expo held at Durban Park yesterday was a considerable success. Despite the persistent rain, scores of youths from all areas and municipalities of Georgetown turned out to interact and socialise.
The Expo started at 10:00hrs and featured thirty booths, most of which displayed career and entrepreneurship opportunities available.
Booths on display ranged from the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) to the Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA). The GDF booth had three sections, the Information Technology (IT) section, the Medical Corps and the Jungle Survival department.
The Guyana Prison Service (GPS) booth had leather craft on display; this publication learnt that the craft was handmade by a prison officer and also present at the expo was the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) who displayed equipment used for fire fighting.
In the latter half of the day there was a special stage show for the children. The show featured cultural dances, an acrobatic display and performances from local artistes that included “Kwasi Ace” and “Alabama”.
This part of the expo was especially popular with the children and they were an energetic crowd as they jumped, ran, and “palanced” to the music, at one point Commander Hicken joined Kwasi Ace onstage and entertained the youths who screamed in delight.
Speaking to the media, Hicken highlighted that “A” Division was seeing positive results with their community youth groups. He maintained that the “A” Division of the police force is going to continue to reach out and try to positively influence the younger generation in their jurisdiction.
Notably present at the event was Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan.
