first_imgFollowing the successful hosting of two state events – the National Flag Raising Ceremony and the Jubilee Float Parade – organised as part of the 50th Independence anniversary celebrations, the Ministry of Public Security said it is pleased that the events were “generally” incident free.In a statement on Friday, the ministry commended the general public and the Guyana Police Force for their display of good citizenship. It was observed that the Police Force, supported by the Guyana Fire Service and the Health Services, coordinated efforts to ensure the general safety and security of the public.According to the ministry, while citizens were in celebratory mode, “our officers were working beyond the call of duty to deliver first-class operational and security support to the major events over the last two days.These efforts included crowd control, traffic management, protection against possible terror threats and general public safety.”“The Ministry wishes to offer special commendation to the traffic ranks who executed a well put together plan to minimize inconveniences to the traveling public. It is heartening to note that we were able to celebrate our Golden Jubilee almost without incident,” the statement detailed.In addition, the ministry said citizens of Guyana and visitors who attended these mega events conducted themselves in a manner that is praiseworthy. Nevertheless, as there are a few more events remaining on the official Jubilee Calendar of events, the ministry calls upon the general public to continue to demonstrate good citizenship and the security forces to continue to demonstrate resolve and dedication.On another note, the Public Security Ministry extended condolences to the relatives of the late Roxanne Mitchell, who died as a result of a vehicular accident while returning home from the flag raising ceremony. “This loss of life is regretted.The Ministry takes this opportunity to call upon the traveling public to obey the rules of the road and take care and caution when traversing our roadways,” the statement read.last_img read more

Last fall, the city added a similar patrol. In the first year of operation, that unit was credited with making 363 arrests, including arrests of three murder suspects and 12 arrests of people suspected of assaults with a deadly weapon. In September, the City Council approved converting four community service officer positions from the sheriff’s contract into city jobs. The goal is to free up deputies from routine chores so they can concentrate on investigating crimes and arresting suspects. The community service officers handle tasks such as taking reports on minor, nonemergency crimes; taking fingerprints; answering phones; issuing parking citations; and directing traffic at crash sites or special events. For the past four years, the city has contracted with the Sheriff’s Department for the four officers, but for each of the past two years the county has not been able to fill two of the slots. PALMDALE – Palmdale is looking to add a two-deputy, 40-hour patrol team to its sheriff’s contract. The two-deputy team is what deputies refer to as a “bomber” car, a unit that can patrol without being diverted to routine calls. The team can be used to focus on particular high-crime areas or to look for particular crimes. “It’s a preventative type measure rather than going after crime after it’s been done,” said Councilman Mike Dispenza. The addition of the unit is expected to cost the city $153,000 for the remainder of this fiscal year, which runs to June 30. last_img read more

The operator of the British rail network, Network Rail, said it was slowing down trains in response to the extreme weather, which comes only weeks after another record-breaking heatwave in Europe in June.
