Guyana: Top cop says ‘givers and takers’ to be prosecuted in bribery of traffic ranks

-

Guyana Police Commissioner Leslie James has urged ranks to desist from accepting bribes from members of the public. He also stated clearly that the Police Force will be prosecuting members of the public who offer bribes to police officers as the offence is a “two-way street” involving both givers and takers. 

The top cop issued the warning on Monday at the opening ceremony of a training programme at the Officers’ Training Centre, Camp Street, Georgetown, where he said that he is looking for a change in performance of ranks and fewer allegations of corruption in terms of bribery claims.

“Once there is no offer, there can’t be accepted. It goes both sides, offer and acceptance, and let me warn you, civilians, we are coming after you, those of you who are offering,” he said.
