The Guyana Police Force as part of its 174th anniversary celebrations yesterday doled out $10M to more than 1300 of its ranks who performed outstandingly suppressing crime and traffic lawlessness.Head of the Police Narcotics Branch, Deputy Superintendent Linden Lord receives his award from Commissioner of Police (ag) Leroy Brumell.Yesterday’s awards ceremony, which was held at the Tactical Services Unit Drill Square, Eve Leary, marked the 23rd year that the Force has rewarded its ranks who show professionalism and bravery in the execution of their duties.“When our ranks step out of line, we deal with them; when they do good, we must reward them, ” said Commissioner (ag) Leroy Brumell.During a brief address to the ranks and other special invitees, including retired senior police officers, Brumell acknowledged that the Force is plagued by crimes and traffic lawlessness, with road deaths so far this year, 30 percent more than the corresponding period last year.He noted that it was time for the Force to take decisive action and warned that there will be zero tolerance especially when it comes to enforcing the new “Operation Road Order”, NFL Jerseys Cheap, which will deal with the current traffic situation in the country.“When we take action towards enforcement, we always come up with encumbrances, but we will continue with our rigid enforcement. The situation is terrible, ” Brumell said.The Commissioner told those gathered at the ceremony that the Guyana Police Force alone cannot curtail crime and he urged members of the business community to carefully examine the staff that they employ since it is believed that a number of the robberies that are being committed are aided by insiders.Brumell pointed to the recent robbery on a city auto dealing concern. He said that he found it puzzling that with so much ex-security personnel associated with that particular business, such a brazen robbery could have occurred.The Commissioner also highly commended the ranks who were involved in the recent capture of three bandits who had attempted to rob a Chinese restaurant at Coldingen on East Coast Demerara.He said that while many persons were clamouring for a more violent approach towards the apprehension of criminals, the Guyana Police Force will remain professional.Bartica Rural Constable Edward Persaud is presented with his award from Commander ‘F’ Division, Courtney Ramsey.“However we will not run when we are dealing with armed gangs, ” Brumell warned.Apart from the police ranks, several Community Policing Group members and other individuals received commendations for their role in the suppression of crime.

….as Ramsaroop blasts state media, renews calls for Broadcast LegislationPolitician Peter Ramsaroop of Vision Guyana said that the State Media which relentlessly covered false information on the incident involving the illegal search by the Police has not seen it fit to publish that his case is closed and the police have returned all equipment by order of the Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang.Ramsaroop said that it is only the independent newspapers especially KN which provided fair coverage and exposed the political hand in smearing his name.He lashed out at operatives of the State Media, including Dr. Randy Persaud, who he said was responsible for writing some of the stories first published in the Chronicle when he was not even assigned as a reporter.He also said that Guyana Times published front page stories but have now refused to publish the close of the case and the illegal search warrant.Ramsaroop also contended through his sources that a senior government official promised his son’s fiancee help with her American Visa if she can get him to turn on his father who he felt opposed their relationship.He said the state media refused to verify any of the information published but on more than 30 occasions even in stories not related to him put his name and case.“The constant call for all state media to close doors and privatise must be stepped up especially when government uses our taxpayers’ money to tarnish the opposition parties.”He said they even published that he attended a meeting with Raphael Trotman in Miami when that was absolutely false again demonstrating the incompetence.Ramsaroop said that the government should refer the state media to the ERC, instead of the independent newspapers.He added also that they are in the process of preparing litigation at false accusations by his tenant Nicole Ming, China Jerseys Free Shipping, the illegal search warrant and the libelous printing of information by the state media and its outlets.The politician also used the opportunity to re-emphasise the need for Broadcast Legislation which would allow for set parameters that would ensure fair reportage.

It has been a little over two years since four-year-old Brianna Dover perished in a sewage depot at Tucville. Today, officials are putting the finishing touches to the facility to eliminate a recurrence of the tragedy that rocked the nation.This newspaper visited the site yesterday, and observed that the entire facility has been renovated and the large open reservoirs have been covered.Residents in the community are now breathing a huge sigh of relief, China NFL Jerseys, since they claimed that it is now less likely that a similar tragedy will occur again.Natasha Alexander, Brianna Dover’s aunt, who resides in the modest community that adjoins the sewage facility, told this newspaper that she is happy with the initiative to seal-off the facility.“Since she died, they started to work on it, like couple months after, ” Alexander told this newspaper.However, the woman explained that although the facility is now safe, it is like locking the stable after the horse had bolted.“If they had done it first, I would have my niece until now. So, I does feel bad about it, because if wasn’t for her they would not have done it, and at least they know it was something very dangerous, ” Alexander stated.“I am happy that they do it and other children wouldn’t go for something like that to them, ” she added.Immediately after the tragedy, authorities had erected a fence separating the facility from the nearby squatter community, which was once the old Ministry of Housing complex.This prevented children from wandering close to the treacherous reservoir filled with dumped human waste. The area has also been brightly illuminated.“Yeah, they do a fence and they have light now at the back there, so the children don’t really go around there anymore, ” Alexander told this newspaper.According to the woman, the entire community still remembers the tragedy as if it had occurred yesterday.“If they see children going out of bounds and out of sight, they would warn them to stay in the yard.We always remind the children about the little girl who fell in. Up to the other day I talk to my son and I told him about Brianna.I tell my children don’t go nowhere near, because just like how my niece go behind there and fall down and dead, the same could happen to them, ” Alexander said.On July 17, 2006, little Brianna Dover wandered into the sewage compound and fell into one of the 20-foot reservoirs which at the time was filled with human waste that was dumped by a city waste disposal company.After she went missing, a search was launched around the area, and it was not until her haversack and slippers were seen in the reservoir that a decision was taken to search there for her.Ordock Reid, a resident of the area, volunteered to dive into the cesspit, and after risking his life for more than two hours, he eventually found little Brianna.But despite the efforts of medical personnel at the scene, who tried mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, Brianna was pronounced dead at the Georgetown Public Hospital.An official at the site told this newspaper yesterday that dumping of sewage is still done at the location, but it is now much safer.
