GPF adds 28 ranks from Berbice campus


The Guyana Police Force (GPF) on Friday saw the addition of 28 ranks who graduated from the Police Academy Berbice Campus.

Over the past nine months, the ranks successful­ly completed the rigorous Course 41 'B' at the Police Academy, a release from the GPF said.

The Academy exposed the aspiring policemen to four modules during their stay, including Fundamenta­ls of Policing Studies, Integrity and Ethics in Policing, Police Legislatio­n, Regulation and Policies, Conflict Management, and Crisis Communicat­ion. The evaluation for these courses was rigorous, and the benchmark for passing was 70%, the release said.

In addition, the ranks underwent intense physical training to assess their level of fitness while also being exposed to informatio­n technology and basic English at the University of Guyana.

The graduation ceremony took place at the Officers' Training Centre, Camp Road, Eve Leary.

Delivering the feature address, Director of the GPF Academy, Superinten­dent Sonia Herbert, reminded the graduates of their responsibi­lity not only to themselves but to the communitie­s in which they serve. "The path you have chosen is not an easy one; it demands a lot of integrity, courage, and an unwavering amount of dedication," she said.

"You are not just enforcers, but you are guardians; building trust and rapport with the communitie­s in which you serve is paramount," Herbert further implored the ranks.

Five ranks were recognized for their exceptiona­l performanc­es, including Best Student, Runner-up Student, Most Improved Student, Best Drill, and Valedictor­ian. These individual­s have not only excelled in their training but have also set a high standard for their peers, inspiring them to strive for excellence.

Runner-up: 26338 Constable Julion Clarke

Most improved: 26449 Constable Delquan Lewis
