Georgetown, Guyana: The Guyana Police Force and the Guyana Defence Force are collaborating in a joint operation which will focus on using drones in order to tackle increasing crime rate.

The drones are operated by the Guyana Defence Force and are being used to keep a record on the various areas of Georgetown. The anti-crime operation was titled as “Eye in the Sky”, which is supposed to be continued for a month.

In order to maintain peace, the authorities are using low flying drones so the people would not be frightened when they see the drones. The police department is working efficiently for citizen’s security and following are the other measures which are being used, along with an anti-crime operation.

  • Additional roadblocks
  • Stop and search
  • Traffic enforcement
  • Roving patrols
  • Raids

In addition, the Guyana police and defence force will also organise several motorcycle and bicycle campaigns and execute cordons and searches in their investigation.

According to the report, if any person is found to be involved in any criminal activity, a warrant will be issued against him and he will be taken into police custody for further interrogation. The Government of Guyana urged the public’s support and cooperation in the joint services.

Additionally, such efforts and initiatives showcased the unwavering commitment and dedication of the police and defence department to tackle the issue of criminal activities in the country.

As per sources, the country is currently experiencing a rise in crime on every alternate day. Recently, the officials of Whales Police Station of Guyana seized 852 grams of narcotics during an operation in Patentia Housing Scheme and “Skull-City” in West Bank Demerara.

Upon seeing this, one of the suspects dropped his bag upon seeing the police officers. Investigating officers searched inside the bag and found narcotics, which have an estimated street value of $766,800.00.

The case remains under investigation and the police department encourages the public with any information to come forward and assist in their investigation.
