E Division commander wants better police image before he retires
By Jeff Trotman
“When the people in the (Victory) Valley see policemen early morning or late in the afternoon, or at night, they mustn’t hide or duck. We are their friends. We’re looking after public safety and security … And in the Guyana Police Force, service and protection is our motto”.
Commander of the E Division of the Guyana Police Force, Owen Trotz made the comment during the first anniversary celebration of the Wismar Police Station Management Committee on Saturday, 17th May.
The Commander was responding to a call made earlier by chairman of the committee, Basil Jaipaul, who had expressed concern at the undesirable manner in which police officers generally accost members of the public while performing their duty.
