Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn is encouraging young men and women of the Amerindian community of Moruca, Region One to become members of the Guyana Police Force and Guyana Defence Force to create a balance in developing Guyana.

“I am glad to see young men and women join the Community Policing Group. The CPG should be used as a vehicle for training to join the police force and GDF. I strongly feel we need more balance in our forces so we can lift the load together in securing our country and villages. For better relations and understanding to deal with diverse matters we need to have a good mix up,” Minister Benn stated.

He made that comment at the Moruca Community Centre Friday last, whilst delivering remarks at an interactive meeting with the newly formed Moruca Community Policing Group (CPG) and members of the Village Council. The Minister also handed over an All-Terrain Vehicle and a 40 horsepower engine to the group to facilitate their patrolling activities.

Even though the equipment were donated for crime fighting purposes, they should be utilised to make the lives of residents better.

“If we work together we can make a better country. We need to be understanding about people’s challenges. So if someone needs to transport seeds for their farms, or cassava sticks or a sick person, the CPG should assist. We really need to work together to ease the burden and improve the quality of life,” he added.
