New Commissioner of Police, Leslie James and Deputy Commissioner ‘Administration’ Paul Williams last Tuesday met and had ‘frank discussions’ with members of the National Community Policing Executive (NCPE) during the latter’s Monthly Statutory meeting.
A statement from the police yesterday said that the meeting was held in the Commissioner’s Conference Room and was chaired by the Public Relations and Press Officer of the Force who is also the National Coordinator of Community Policing in Guyana.
The statement said that both the Commissioner and his Deputy who previously served as Divisional Commanders and enjoyed cordial relationships with members of Community Policing Groups (CPG) and are also aware of some of the issues they encounter, have assured the national body of several initiatives that will be implemented immediately to address their concerns.
Representatives at the Statutory Meeting included the Chairperson/Representatives of the sixteen CPG Divisions as well as the Deputy Police Commanders of Divisions A-G, who are also the Division’s CPG Coordinators.
Vice Chairman of the NCPE, Kishore Gobin in responding, conveyed on behalf of all CPG members, congratulations to the Commissioner and his new administration and said he was positive that with the implementation of the new initiatives outlined by the Top Cop and his Deputy, communities will soon become much safer for everyone.
