The United States Government through its Embassy in Grenada has once again reached out to the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) providing mobile assistance towards the fight against crime.
Last Friday, Caribbean Attaché for US Drug Enforcement Administration Timothy William handed over the keys to a brand new pickup to Assistant Commissioner of Police Michael Francois during a short ceremony on Fort George, to help the RGPG in its fight against crime on the island.
Friday’s donation was the second vehicle given to the RGPF this year and one of three vehicles earmarked for Grenada before the end of 2015.
Subsequent to accepting the keys on behalf of the RGPF, ACP Francois said it is a very timely gift, one that would go a long way in assisting the RGPF in maintaining an effective level of mobility; one he noted that is of vital importance in the fight against crime.
In showering praises on the US Government, Francois noted that over the years the fleet of vehicles owned by the RGPF has shown signs of depletion and therefore with this new addition the mobile operation arm of the RGPF would be greatly boosted.
When asked about the specific function of the new vehicle, Francois said, the vehicle was handed over to the RGPF and it would be used for RGPF operations, no specific task he said, has been assigned, except towards the improvement of the capabilities of the RGPF in its response to crime and in the service of the people of Grenada.
