Crime Chief Seelall Persaud has acknowledged that the Guyana Police Force needs to be more aggressive, albeit in a professional way, to stem criminal activities in light of the perception that crime has been increasing steadily within recent times.Assistant Commissioner Persaud was responding to reports in the media that suggested a serious crime problem, with calls from the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) for a stronger resolve not to return to the crime spree of the early 2000s.While he could not disclose any figures at this time, the Crime Chief pointed out that statistics obtained on a daily basis do not show an increase in criminal activity.“Figures have shown a decline in street crimes over the past three to four years. But we are addressing the current situation.”But while reports of high criminal activity have been few in most police divisions, the same cannot be said about the city and its environs. And according to many observers, this is where the perception of heightened criminal activity is being fuelled.Almost on a daily basis there are reports of robberies committed on persons by bandits using firearms.Only last week, a popular Essequibo businessman was shot and robbed in the “well protected” Regent Street area, which boasts several police patrols,Basket Jordan Junior Soldes, both vehicular and foot.Attacks on persons leaving city banks have been increasing while robberies committed on overseas-based persons are also being more frequently highlighted.As recent as Monday, another overseas-based Guyanese was robbed.Reports reaching this newspaper stated that 52-year-old US-based Hazel Braithwaite and her 72-year-old relative were robbed by three men of a large amount of cash, including US currency, at their home in Coverden,Cheap Liverpool Shirts, East Bank Demerara.This newspaper was told that about 19:30 hours that day,Cheap Adidas Nmd Australia, Alma Braithwaite left the house – which is heavily secured by grills at the windows and doors – to turn on the water pump in the yard,Wholesale Shoes From China Free Shipping, when she was confronted by the suspects.Her screams alerted Hazel Braithwaite who rushed to her assistance, but was also held up by the bandits.  The two women were both forced back into the house, where Hazel was placed to lie on the ground and duct-taped by the suspects.Alma Braithwaite was taken around the house by the suspects who ransacked the premises and found the mentioned articles.Like in most other cases no one has been arrested.In a release issued on Monday, the Indian Arrival Committee noted with concern the recent spate of robberies where members of both the urban and rural business communities have been targeted.The IAC also mentioned the increased allocations by the government to the security forces,Basket Jordan Junior Pas Cher, and it is expected that these will be distributed in a manner to ensure improved safety and security for all the people of Guyana.“These increased resources need to be matched with real results. Perhaps, a stricter mechanism to ensure that allocation of resources lead to sustained tangible efforts is actualized,” the IAC said.It added that at the same time, all citizens need to show support for the anti-crime measures being pursued, including ongoing reforms and improvements,Adidas Basketball Shoes Sale, noting that emphasis on Community Policing Groups and efforts to attract more members into the security forces are commendable.The IAC stated that there must be a stronger resolve not to return to the crime spree of the early 2000s, and to ensure that a stable and secure environment is maintained so that the people of Guyana can live normal lives and fulfill their aspirations.And the Alliance for Change has noted with concern the recent upsurge of violent criminal activity.The party highlighted two recent incidents that do not augur well for the public confidence in the security forces.The two incidents involved 43-year old Balram Teekaram of Cornelia Ida who was shot dead last Tuesday by armed bandits who invaded his West Coast Demerara home, and 56-year old Wilbert Hall who was shot by bandits who robbed him of $1 million at a Chinese restaurant in Linden.According to the AFC, public safety and security are fundamental deliverables that any capable government is supposed to ensure.“Crime is stifling genuine investment opportunities, affecting the well being of the working people and is one of the principal contributors to the skilled human capital migration from Guyana,” the AFC said.
