The Guyana Police Force, through the Cove and John Police Station’s Traffic Department, continues its commitment to road safety and community engagement initiatives. Sergeant Scott, Corporal Persaud, and other ranks conducted a visit to Ann’s Grove Secondary, Hope Secondary, and Enmore Primary schools on January 8, 2024.

Aligned with the Road Safety Theme 2023/2024, the initiative aimed to emphasize that road safety is not just a slogan but a way of life. The police ranks urged students and teachers to respect the road and highlighted the importance of responsible road behavior.

During the visit, it was highlighted that in November 2023, the schools received reflectors and ‘Stop signs’ and established a School Road Safety Patrol to enhance safety for students and pedestrians. The active patrol continues to contribute to the safety of those in the vicinity.

To ensure the effectiveness of the initiative, the police ranks conducted a refresher exercise for the students, reinforcing key principles of road safety. This proactive approach is a valuable step towards instilling a culture of responsible road behavior among the younger generation.

In a separate engagement, Sergeant Robin, Lance Corporal Edwards, Lance Corporal Jackson, and Pastor Mahendra Sharma from the Cops and Faith network conducted a community engagement within the Enmore Station District, East Coast Demerara, earlier this week. The outreach is part of the Police Force’s committed efforts to address concerns, listen to suggestions, and work together with residents, the business community, and the general public to find solutions aimed at maintaining peace and security.

Additionally, Sergeant Fields and ranks of the Annandale Police Outpost held a ‘walkabout exercise’ at Annandale, East Coast Demerara, last Saturday. The initiative allowed the police to meet and interact with residents, addressing concerns and discussing community-related issues.

These proactive engagements underscore the Guyana Police Force’s dedication to fostering community relations, enhancing road safety, and working collaboratively with the public to ensure a secure and peaceful environment.
