Yesterday, Senior Members of the Guyana Police Force including Crime Chief, Assistant Commissioner Paul Williams met with Karen De Souza and other representatives of Red Thread on a domestic violence report.
A release from the police said that the discussion surrounded the preliminary report of a two-year project which began in 2016 focusing on “Engaging communities for improving implementation of Domestic Violence laws”.
Communities targeted were: Plaisance/Better Hope, La Parfaite Harmonie, Bartica, Lethem and Anna Regina.
During the research, the police said that police stations within the stated communities would have been observed as it relates to how members of the Force are dealing with domestic violence and other related matter.
Domestic violence particularly against women has continued to be a major problem for the country and has seen many women murdered even after complaining to the police.
