The (Friday, 11/01/19) newspapers devoted much coverage on the recommendations for improving the Guyana Police Force by enhancing capacity through training, infrastructure and Human Resource Management.
Having regard to my lifelong involvement with Human Resource Management Development, I wish to compliment the Commissioner of Police and all those involved in this vital pursuit. Also, I wish to suggest that in addition to the various forms of training being considered, the critical aspect of self-learning/ ‘self-development’ must not be overlooked.
The typical policeman/policewoman is required to be, among other things, ‘physically fit’, a condition, which only he/she can control; a cursory observation of members of our police force indicates that too many of them are over-weight given the size of their girth; as that is a good layman’s test of physical fitness. We can conclude that too many are not as fit as they should be; they should, therefore, be required to improve their physical fitness in the same way that attention is paid to their mental/conceptual development.
