A young policeman from Eve Leary who represented the Guyana Police Force at the 6th Inter-American Youth Forum and the 27th Scout Conference in Panama from November 21 to December 3, 2018, has been rewarded for being an excellent Ambassador, a release from the police said yesterday.
Twenty-year-old Cub Scout Leader, Constable 23956 Ronaldo Torres who was among 260 participants from a number of countries which participated in the forum and conference, said it was a life-changing experience for him to have left these shores for the first time and to interact with persons of diverse backgrounds, the release said.
The Cub Leader said that the programme was an educational one which will support the process of developing new youth participation in partnership with adults and young members.
Torres who is a member of the ‘D’ Division Headquarters Scout Group, received his formal scout training under the leadership of District Scout Leader, Judy Alves. He was articulate in his delivery, which earned him an on-the-spot promotion to Lance Corporal and also he was transferred to the Scouts Office at Eve Leary where it is envisaged that his services would be fully utilized in training of members of the scouts and youth groups.
An elated Lance Corporal Torres who resides at Stewartville, West Coast Demerara, is slated to attend a training seminar tomorrow at the Police Officers’ Training Centre along with Instructors of the Felix Austin Police College, in Methods of Instruction.
