Why are drivers pulled over on the streets of Georgetown to check documents?

Dear Editor,

For some time now, police officers have been stationed in front of Queen’s College compound on Camp Street, indiscriminately pulling over busy citizens during the week and on weekends and holidays.

If you are not stationary for a few minutes at the stop sign by Thomas Lands and Camp Street, you will be pulled over. If you have just turned the corner from Carifesta Avenue into Camp Street, you are pulled over with “Documents please”.

What is the point of being pulled over on the streets of Georgetown to check documents?

My suggestion is that some of these officers should be placed at the Stabroek Market to curb the lawless pick-pocketing and purse-snatching there instead of looking to collect a raise from drivers.

Yours faithfully,

S Lateef
