Key proposals on police force languishing
Ten years on…
Ten years after its completion, there is little evidence that work is being done to implement the 71 recommendations for the improvement of the police force made in the Disciplined Forces Commission (DFC) report, despite renewed interest by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Still faced with a severe shortage of ranks, who critics say are inadequately paid and lack the necessary crime fighting tools-areas which were addressed in the report-the Guyana Police Force (GPF) however have said differently. Following discussions between police officials and the Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee late last month, the police say that work has been done in relation to the recommendations made.
