– To publish educational posters on crime and Covid 19
Three outstanding Police Officers based in Region Six were honoured on Monday as the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club MS hosted its annual NAMILCO /Mike Pharmacy Tribute to
Law Enforcement Officers programme. The programme was organised this year as part of Guyana leading youth and sports club 30th anniversary celebration. The RHTYSC was founded in 1990 by three times Guyana and Commonwealth Youth Service awardee, the St Francis Community Developers and over the years has developed into one of the country top cricket teams and the only youth and sports club to ever receive a national award from the Government of Guyana.
The three officers who were chosen to receive the award by the Region Six Police Commander’s Office are Constable Aubrey Higgins, Woman Constable Sharion Welcome and Constable Irwin Barton. Club Secretary /CEO Hilbert Foster stated that the award was started in 2014 when the club realized that there were honest hard working police officers in Berbice despite the negative view of some critics.
Foster urged the awardees to always strive for excellence and to be faithful to the vow they took to protect all Guyanese.
The long serving club executive pledged that the RHTYSC would continue the award in the future and would also expand its effort to assist the Police Force in the region. He disclosed that the club would be publishing thousands of stickers for distribution with the phone numbers of the police stations in the county as part of an anti crime campaign, while thousands of large coloured posters would also be published on crime prevention advice and how to stay safe during the ongoing pandemic.The posters would feature the images of national youth players Jonathan Rampersaud, Mahendra Gopilall and Jeremy Sandia and would be distributed free of cost across Berbice. Foster also disclosed that the ten cricket teams of the club are working hard to host a multi million dollars charity programme which would include the distribution of food hampers, toys, educational materials, clothing, footwear and medical supplies.
Region Six Commander, Linden Isles, expressed gratitude to the club and its ten cricket teams for their contribution to the anti crime campaign over the years and urged them to continue doing so. The Commander also urged the awardees to uphold the high standards they have set themselves.
Similar advice was shared by Officer in Charge of Division Two, Inspector Michael Newland who committed the force to fulfilling its duty of making the country free of crime. Each of the awardees received a collection of gifts along with a framed certificate of excellence, a trophy and a medal. The Namilco /Mike Pharmacy Tribute to Law Enforcement Officers Award is one of dozens of programmes hosted by the club in observance of its 30th anniversary.
