The government alone should finance the Police Force

Dear Editor,

I refer to the recent publicity given to the donation of television sets to the Guyana Police Force by the Princess Hotel, Providence.

Should for instance, there be a subsequent complaint to the police in connection with the Princess Hotel or its employees, a conflict of interest could arise with respect to the police.

While offers of support from business/ individuals are enticing, such offers ought to be politely refused. The government must bear the sole responsibility of financing the Police Force.


Yours faithfully,
Victor Simon
