You have the entire Force behind you and you must understand that. I am reminding you that the Guyana Police Force has a support mechanism, there is no need for you to extort [unassertiveness] while you execute your duties. It can be confusing when our citizens experience [unassertiveness] while you are executing your duties, so I urge while you engage the public you do so with much assertiveness,” James emphasised.Police Commissioner Leslie JamesIn addition, several officers were given on the spot promotion.
