Acting Police Commissioner Clifton Hicken commended the officers and reminded them they would get a reward whenever they deserved it.

“You have done well and you must understand under the stewardship of the new Executive Leadership Team and Commissioner – we are going to reward you when you are deserving of it,” Hicken said.

“We could not have allowed this to go unnoticed and I think this sets the tone for what is to happen in the new year,” the Guyana Acting Police Commissioner told the gathering at which other senior officers were present.
