Police need to provide stats on carjackings, vehicle theft

first_imgDear Editor,I note a Guyana Times report citing statistics provided by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) about the number of murders, robberies, traffic accidents, etc, that have occurred this year. Missing from the list is the number of carjacking and vehicles stolen. I have been told that number for this year stands at well over 100.Can the GPF provide the public with the accurate figure and can they say how many vehicles have been recovered through Police investigations? And does the GPF consider these serious crimes?The GPF needs to provide the statistics for these crimes along with the comparative figures of carjacking and vehicle theft that occurred in previous years.For everyone who continues to be concerned and wishes to know whether my car has been recovered, the answer is no. As far as I am aware, there has been no proper investigation.That’s the story from just about everyone who has been carjacked or had their vehicle stolen and it feeds the public perception that the Police are involved in these crimes.Sincerely,Ryhaan Shahlast_img
