The new Guyana Police Force (GPF) Strategic Plan that was handed over to the Police Reform Change Board in February last will be focusing heavily on human resources and the strengthening of infrastructure for operations in the Force.Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Williams, who bears responsibility for administration in the GPFThis is according to Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Williams, who has responsibility for administration in the GPF.In an exclusive interview with Guyana Times, he stated that this new Strategic Plan caters for a three-year period and has been built upon work that commenced under the previous Strategic Plan (2013-2017).“That plan (2013 to 2017) would have commenced but then what happened, there might have been certain risk management or there might have been certain situations that which would have created some amount of changes in terms of having that five-year run fully completed. Now, through the Citizen Security Sector Reform Programme and also now where we have gone through the required process through the UK, we recognise the importance in terms of having a new strategic plan. That new strategic plan is now built upon what we would have commenced before,” Williams added.The Deputy Police Commissioner explained that Police Commissioner Leslie James, upon installation to that post, had mentioned that the GPF hierarchy would have been paying keen attention to the human resources management, training, and infrastructure areas of the GPF.“Now those are things that would have already been mentioned before but now in this new Plan, the aspect in terms of human resources, that going to be a great, great focus and also in terms of strengthening the infrastructure for operations because now with the Sector Reform aspect, we are now looking in terms of boosting our maritime capability, our k-9, also in the other areas and also we are looking in terms of regionalisation of the police boundaries. Remember, we have seven police Divisions, now we are moving to 10 because the Divisions are going to come in line with the administrative regions.”He also said that with all of this in mind, there is a requirement for new strategies and approaches.“So with this new Plan, it is going to help us in terms of maximising and reaching those potentials. So we already embarked upon that plan,” Williams added. (Kristen Macklingam)
