Cash Rewards For Guyana Cops Who Seized Five Illegal Guns


Eight Guyana police officers received cash rewards on Wednesday after seizing five illegal guns while on patrol.

According to a police statement, on Monday, a team comprising Sergeant David Goodridge, Corporal Kestel Drayton, Constables Rawlwyn Washington, and Rickishahe recovered  four other illegal guns at Melanie and Strathspey.

And on Tuesday, a team led by Sergeant Patrick Reynolds, along with Lance Corporal Sylvester Bacchus, Constables Rodwell Wilson, and Wayne Daniels, confiscated a firearm at Beterverwagting on Tuesday.

According to the Guyana Police Force, Sergeant Reynolds and his team received $50,000, while Sergeant Goodridge and his team got $200,000 cash.

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.
