Top Cop developing ‘security intelligence’ within Police Force

first_img… before “riding off into sunset”With just a few months left under his belt before his retirement next year, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud is looking to develop ‘security intelligence’ within the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to further strengthen its mandate.Police Commissioner Seelall PersaudThis project is among three recently outlined by the Top Cop to be implemented in 2017, when he will be closing the curtains on his 30plus years law enforcement career. The other two projects have to do with having officers more closely monitor communities at the station level and developing the Force’s Public Relations (PR) Department to reach the younger generation.“I intend to fully implement these three major projects before I ride into retirement. I think they are all achievable and I think with the team that I have right now at the top of the Force, it is something that we will be able to implement very smoothly,” he remarked at an event on Friday. The Police Commissioner explained that the Police Force has significantly developed its crime intelligence outside of the Special Branch, which has proven to be more beneficial both on the tactical side as well as the strategic end. At the same time, however, he explained that the Force’s security intelligence has been lagging. “We have a very strong crime intelligence but we have a not so strong (security) intelligence that deals with other factors such as borders, espionage and the different kinds of political objection groups, activism and that kind of stuff,” he stated.To this end, Persaud disclosed that the GPF has turned to its Jamaican counterpart – the Jamaican Force Constabulary, which is said to have the best Police intelligence system in the Caribbean – to lend assistance in developing its security intelligence.He added that already, a team from the Caribbean Island came to Guyana and conducted an analysis during this year. A report was since produced and based on the recommendations made, an operational plan for implementation has been developed and is now with the Public Security Minister for approval, the Police Commissioner noted. He said that once the Minister gives the green light, this project will be implemented next year.Meanwhile, the second project that Commissioner Persaud is seeking to have rolled out ahead of his 2017 retirement will tackle two areas; having a specific group of ranks focusing on a particularly geographic area within the Police Station’s district and this will in turn hold specific persons accountable at frontline levels.According to the Top Cop, this initiative has already been introduced at some Police Stations with teams of ranks being given responsibility for a geographic area within the district of the station. The Station Sergeants are expected to manage this initiative to ensure effectiveness. He noted that this way, the ranks would know the households, the people living within that community, the businesses operating there and the nuisances affecting the community in order to be better able to provide Policing servicing within that community.“If that community is getting worst, those are the people who will be called upon personally to be accountable,” he stated.On the other hand, the third project involves enhancing the Force PR Department, which Commissioner Persaud said has been suffering and just woke up. He disclosed that an in-house team is currently working along with PRO, Superintendent Jairam Ramlakhan, to develop a plan for next year.The Top Cop noted that the Private Sector Commission (PSC) has already offered assistance and the Force is looking to collaborate with other organisations or individuals with expertise in this area to add to a workable plan for next year.“So you are likely to see a lot of changes in the way we do public relations and I think that will benefit not only the media, but the society. I have made mention in recent time to the millennial generation; they are people who we are seeing entering the justice system, meaning they are being arrested for crimes and there are persons who play video games and live on social media. They don’t watch the news on television and don’t read the newspapers. So the positive messages that come through those medium does not impact them,” he stated.In this effort, the Commissioner noted that he along with A Division (Georgetown) Commander Clifton Hicken, met with about 25 entertainers such as DJs and promoters, soliciting their help to get positive messages from the Force across to people who go to the parties or listen to specific radio programmes.

Guardiola plays down hopes of clinching title in derby

first_imgFirst, City must win their visit to mid-table Everton but, should they do so, Guardiola will win his first league title in English football with victory over his old rival Mourinho at the Etihad.“Everybody is always asking this question,” said Guardiola. “But the important thing is on March 12, we have 81 points, that is a lot of points.“We want to be champions. We need three wins, but we are able to do it with two (if City beat United).“But before and after United, we have the (Champions League) quarter-finals, and at the moment that is the most important thing to focus on.“I understand for the fans, okay, but the important thing is to be champions. When and where it doesn’t matter.”The in-form English team are also in with a strong chance of winning Europe’s premier prize for the first time in their history.The draw for the Champions League last eight takes place on Friday and Guardiola will watch it live, along with his first-team squad, at their warm weather training camp in Abu Dhabi, where City flew immediately following the Stoke win.City’s shock exit from the FA Cup, at the hands of third-tier Wigan, leaves them without a game until the clash with Everton on the final day of the month.“We are going to be together and make three training sessions in five days,” said the City manager.“We are going to have lunch together, dinner, some people are playing golf. But the weather conditions are better than here – the forecast in Manchester is rain, rain, rain!“So we are going to go there and do the training we should be doing here. Last season we were there and it was good and that’s why we’re going to the airport now.”– Football a ‘welcome relief’ –City’s victory at Stoke came courtesy of two goals from David Silva, whose season has been disrupted because of a family crisis, following the premature birth of his son Mateo in December.Manchester City’s victory at Stoke came courtesy of two goals from David Silva (L), whose season has been disrupted because of a family crisis, following the premature birth of his son Mateo in December © AFP / Paul ELLISThe City forward has been returning to Spain frequently to visit his family and admitted after his superb performance against Stoke that football has been a welcome relief.“I think when I play football I forget everything, it’s good for me to play,” he said.“I know in my private life it is not a very happy moment. But my son is fighting, you know, and I am very happy because he is getting stronger, getting better, so it is okay.”City captain Vincent Kompany offered support to Silva, who has been given permission to miss the Abu Dhabi trip to spend time in Spain.“David just explained his story, it puts everything into perspective for us,” said the defender.“It is a massive boost and relief to be able to play this game like we do. It gives us perspective and brings a moment of joy into our lives.”City, meanwhile, can look forward to a memorable finale to the season given their current form and dominance over the Premier League although their demanding manager is clearly not in the mood to allow his players to relax.“To motivate my players is really easy, we are not champions yet, and when we are, we must carry on, to focus on the next goals which is the Champions League quarter-finals,” said Guardiola.“There are always goals to pursue, statistics to overcome, and we will carry on and then work towards next season. There is always room for improvement and that is what we will do.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola played down growing excitement among supporters over possibly winning the Premier League title saying the Champions League quarter-finals were “the most important thing to focus on” © AFP/File / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 13 – Pep Guardiola tried to play down growing excitement among Manchester City supporters over the possibility of winning the Premier League title when they face bitter rivals United in the derby early next month.Jose Mourinho’s side visit the Etihad Stadium on April 7 for a game which could see City make mathematically certain of being crowned champions following their 2-0 victory at Stoke on Monday.last_img read more

first_imgIndependent MEP Marian Harkin is organising a meeting in Brussels on the issue of new rules being imposed by the Department of Agriculture on the owners of commonage land in Donegal and other hill areas of the country.Speaking following a well attended meeting of hill farmers organised by the Hill Farmer Action Group in Letterkenny on Friday, the Independent MEP repeated her view that unrealistic measures, such as unworkable requirements for participation in the Glas Plus Scheme, needed to be addressed by the Minister for Agriculture.“This is a matter for national politics, as I stated at a previous meeting of hill farmers in Westport, but the rural development programme proposed to the European Commission by the Minister has not yet been approved,” said the MEP. “I have been in contact with the Commission and I am prepared to organise a meeting for hill farmers in Brussels when they can explain the practicalities of commonage farming and point out that the Minister’s current proposals are unrealistic and are not conducive to meeting the needs of productive hill farmers or the environment,” she added. HARKIN TO TAKE DONEGAL FARMERS’ BATTLE TO BRUSSELS was last modified: September 7th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:commonagedonegalmarian harkinMEPlast_img read more

From the Hills of Donegal to the Land of the Rising Sun: Inishowen Rubgy Club reach Japan for World Cup

first_imgIt is a long way from Carndonagh, but even so, that hasn’t stopped one Donegal rugby club from making the near 12,000-mile round trip halfway across the world for the highly anticipated Rugby World Cup. The Inishowen Rugby Club, Ireland’s most northerly rugby enclave, reached Japan last week before the squads opening game against Scotland on Sunday last. The oval ball has not traditionally reached those parts of Donegal. But it infiltrated Inishowen sometime in the 1970s and is still there.Club President of Inishowen Rugby Club, Anne Scott, and a squad of club members join their fellow countrymen and women in the Asian country, painting parts of the country green in the process.Speaking from Japan on Friday, Anne Scott, said the experience ‘was something else’. She said: “The atmosphere in the Yokohama Stadium (against Scotland) was fantastic and the organisation was second to none.“Japan is a country of contrasts – the old is revered and the new is everywhere. The Japanese people are incredibly helpful and polite and there are many more signs in English than we imagined.“The food is wonderful if you are willing to experiment and chopsticks can be mastered! It is something else.“Roll on the next game against our hosts.”Ireland will take on host Japan on tomorrow morning (Sat) at Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa (08:15am local time). From the Hills of Donegal to the Land of the Rising Sun: Inishowen Rubgy Club reach Japan for World Cup was last modified: September 27th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
