Training is the main root of development in the Guyana Police Force

first_imgDear Editor,Training is the main root of development in the Guyana Police Force. Other sectors, even though very important, are just the branches of the tree. Cut the main root and the tree dies. Recently, the media reported on a two-week anti-corruption training funded by the United Kingdom.The Police and other members of some investigative agencies participated. Information received is that apart from training to be conducted by the Felix Austin Police College, The Richard Fikal Police College and the Felix Austin Police College ‘B’ Division, numerous other training programmes would be done by overseas facilitators. It is imperative that the Police be adequately trained to efficiently and effectively execute their mandate as set out under Section 3 (2) of the Police Act, Chapter 16:01. What society expects from their protectors are: to cater for ‘first oil’; securing our western border, and being able to handle emerging security issues and concerns.However, the Police paradigm has shifted towards their being more community-oriented. They are now required to not only solve crimes, but problems in the various communities they serve. Hence the community-oriented policing and problem solving (COPPS) approach.His Excellency President Brig. David A. Granger, in his address to the Annual Police Officers’ Conference 2017, put the role of the Police succinctly, “But we must go beyond and find the causes of crime. Why is there piracy? Why is there suicide? Why is there murder? Why is there rape? Why is there trafficking in my division? What are the causes? So stop boasting about how many cases you made, find out how many cause you are able to discover, and let us stamp out the causes, then you stamp out the crime. If you do not know the cause of crimes, then the crime will continue to repeat over and over again…..“So that is what we have to embark on, a new programme of building partnerships. We have to work with community. We have to know what people in the community need and think, so that they can become partners and not our opponents. The Police Force has to be friends with the people, so you must be friend with the people, and build a partnership between the Police and the communities, and this will help you to get information and to build intelligence network.”To be effective the Police must develop excellent people skills, and display good interpersonal relations with the various stakeholders. They are required to interact with their peers, superiors, and subordinates; members of the public; their friends and family. Hence the need for them to develop effective people skills.Technical competence — the knowledge of law, Police practice and procedure is critical for the Police to be effective, but that is not enough. According to Bennett and Hess (2002), “Technical competence used to be most important.Now and the years ahead, people skills are most important.” Woodward and Buchholz (1987) explain, “One way to visualize this tactical, people-oriented approach is with a bicycle. The two wheels of a bicycle have different purposes. The back wheel powers the bike, the front wheel steers it. Extending this analogy to an organisation, ‘back-wheel skills’ are technical and organizational skills needed for the organization to function. ‘Front-wheel skills’ are interpersonal, ‘people management’ skills. Corporations tend to rely on their back-wheel; that is, their technical skills.Typically, however, when change comes, the response of the organization is primarily back-wheel response: do what we know best. But the real need is for front-wheel skills. That is helping people understand and adapt to the changing environment.”Strategic Management is about change. Reform is about change. Change is inevitable. No person or organisation can stop it. View it as opportunity. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Managers must pay attention to change in their environment, and adapt or perish.The boiled frog phenomenon is very instructive. A classic experiment was done. A frog was dropped in a pan of boiling water, and immediately jumped out, saving its life. Next a frog was placed in a pan of room-temperature water that was gradually heated to boiling point. Because the temperature rise was so gradual, the frog did not notice it, and sat contently in the bottom of the pan. The gradual rising temperature initially made the frog comfortable, but eventually sapped its energy. As the water became too hot, the frog has no strength to jump out. It boiled to death.The boiled frog phenomenon suggests that leaders must pay attention to change in their environment, and adapt or perish. I do not know what the Strategic Management Unit of the Guyana Police Force and the Reform Process have in place to deal with change. The former has been quietly doing some excellent work, but not sharing it with the stakeholders, while the latter went into labour recently.We expect an excellent delivery. Their plans appear to be top secret. I may be jumping the gun, but I have been on the starting block for some time now, and am a bit nervous. Many reform projects fail because a heavy emphasis is placed on the agents of change, while the victims of change are neglected.Organisational change takes centre stage while little or no attention is paid to personal change. I hope that the movers and shakers of the GPF would ensure that those who would be affected by the imminent change would be given the necessary coping skills to grapple with the situation. Inculcating people skills in the minds of the Police is a sine qua non.Yours faithfully,Clinton ConwayAssistantCommissioner of Police(Retd)last_img read more

first_imgA CO Donegal fisherman died in similar circumstances to his brother nine years earlier, an inquest has heard, as a coroner called for boarding ladders to be fitted to trawlers.Killybegs man Oliver Cunningham drowned as he returned to the Patrick C vessel, docked at Castletownbere on April 25 last year.Coroner Frank O’Connell said he would welcome tighter regulations on use of boarding ladders on trawlers after it emerged other seamen died in similar circumstances at the pier. Mr Cunningham had had to jump as he tried to board the vessel on April 25th last.His body was recovered close to the slip at the pier in Castletownbere.His brother Matthew, pictured right, who was just 25 at the time, drowned off Killybegs harbour in November 2002.Mr Cunningham had been living in Co Louth in up until his death. His family at St Catherine’s Road in Killybegs were devastated by the loss of a second son.Sgt Fachtna O’Donovan said it was not the first time such an incident happened. “Especially when the stern is up against the pier, often they have to jump to get back on the boat,” he said.DONEGAL MAN DROWNED AFTER TRYING TO JUMP ON BOARD TRAWLER was last modified: February 22nd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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

Breaking: Traffic worries as 5 months of roadworks planned for heart of Letterkenny

first_imgConcern has been expressed by business groups and motorists in Letterkenny with confirmation that five months (21 weeks) of roadworks are scheduled for Letterkenny starting in May.And the bad news is that the extensive work MUST be carried out during daytime hours which promises even more traffic congestion.The work being carried out by Cleantech Group on behalf of Irish Water is an upgrade of the existing sewer network on Pearse Road, Oldtown, Charley Daly Terrace (R250 towards Ballymacool) and Plunkett O’Boyle Terrace (Back Road). Letterkenny Chamber said members attended the open showcase regarding Irish Water work in the town that included all the areas of forthcoming work.A spokesman said they voiced their concerns at this opening evening and requested a follow-up meeting to get more detail.A spokesperson explained “At very short notice, we were invited to and did attend, a meeting with Irish Water, Donegal County Council and the contractors and we asked the businesses in the immediate vicinity to attend.“This meeting enabled all of us to voice our concerns about the impact of the works and the contractor explained their initial traffic management plan and schedule of works. “We then asked for a further meeting that was arranged for last week where we talked in more detail regarding the traffic management plan. It was also attended by some of the businesses in the area.”Starting on 13th May the planned works are to start on Pearse Road adjacent to Larkin’s Lane and will continue west to Station House Hotel, cross the road, then north up Old town Road to the roundabout at Lower Main Street, then west for approximately 180m.The last phase is at the junction and heading up Plunkett O’Boyle Terrace (Back Road) for 120m.Part of the construction will involve piling which CANNOT take place at night.A spokesman for the chamber added “This piling is very deep and cannot be carried out at night due primarily due to safety concerns and also due to residential property and a hotel in the area. The extent of this work is significant and we have made every effort to ensure the contractor and authorities get this work carried out as quickly as possible.” The traffic during the works will be one way on Oldtown Road.All traffic coming from the Retail Park that wants to go West will have to go right at the junction behind McDonalds. Traffic wanting to go to Oldtown will be diverted up Oliver Plunkett Road then right, down Lower Main Street.Car Parking spaces will be removed at the top of Lower Main Street (near Clarke’s Newsagent) to allow for larger vehicles turning in the junction.There will be traffic management people on the junction at Larkins Lane, top of Oliver Plunkett Road and Lower Main Street to stop and direct traffic and to keep it moving. The work from Pearse Road to Dunnes will take approximately 13 weeks. After that the Pearse Road west bound will re-open.The Chamber spokesperson added “This work will cause traffic issues. In our meetings we have emphasised the need for a robust traffic management plan including signage on all entrances to Letterkenny advising traffic heading for Glenties and Dungloe to go via N56.“We have also emphasised the importance of Traffic Management personnel at all times and very specifically on hand when we see traffic building up.“The Chamber infrastructure committee have made various suggestions throughout these discussions to the Irish Water team that they have taken on board. There have been more suggestions made over recent days that we have sent on to the Contractor.“We have, at all times, asked that the contractor and council talk directly with businesses affected and work with them as best they can.“We have requested further follow-up meetings with the various parties involved in the project so that we can ensure the impact on our business community is minimised as much as is possible.”Breaking: Traffic worries as 5 months of roadworks planned for heart of Letterkenny was last modified: April 26th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:councilIrish WaterletterkennyOldtownroadworkstrafficlast_img read more

Wood County farmer files lawsuit challenging LEBOR legality

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio Farm Bureau Federation has pledged its support to member and Wood County farmer Mark Drewes, who today filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality and legal status of the Lake Erie Bill of Rights. Toledo voters yesterday approved creation of LEBOR during a special election. Drewes’ suit was filed in the Federal District Court for Northern Ohio.LEBOR grants rights to Lake Erie and empowers any Toledo citizen to file lawsuits on behalf of the lake. It gives Toledoans authority over nearly 5 million Ohioans, thousands of farms, more than 400,000 businesses and every level of government in 35 northern Ohio counties plus parts of Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New York and Canada.LEBOR was passed despite the prevailing legal opinion that many of its provisions are unconstitutional.Drewes is a long-time member of Ohio Farm Bureau and is on the board of directors for The Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association. Drewes Farm Partnership is a family crop operation in Custar, Ohio with a significant history of being dedicated to improving water quality.“Mark’s farm is an example of the right way of doing things” said Adam Sharp, executive vice president of Ohio Farm Bureau. “He’s employing a variety of conservation practices, water monitoring systems, water control structures and uses variable rate enabled equipment and yet he’s vulnerable to frivolous lawsuits. We are proud that our member has stood up against this overreach, and his efforts will benefit all Farm Bureau members, farmers and protect jobs in Ohio.”OFBF has historically engaged in precedent setting court cases that potentially affect its members. Farm Bureau will actively assist Drewes and his legal team throughout this litigation to ensure our members’ concerns are heard. OFBF’s legal staff will monitor developments, lend agricultural expertise and provide supporting information about agriculture’s efforts to protect water quality.Drewes is represented by the law firm Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, which has extensive experience fighting against onerous government action.Thomas Fusonie, a partner at Vorys and one of the counsel for Drewes, explained, “The Charter Amendment is an unconstitutional and unlawful assault on the fundamental rights of family farms in the Lake Erie Watershed – like the Drewes’ 5th generation family farm. The lawsuit seeks to protect the Drewes’ family farm from this unconstitutional assault.”The suit argues LEBOR violates federal constitutional rights, including equal protection, freedom of speech and is unenforceable for its vagueness. A request for preliminary and permanent injunction was also filed seeking to prevent enforcement of the law.“Farmers want and are working toward improving water quality, but this new Toledo law hurts those efforts. Mark Drewes understands this, and it’s Farm Bureau’s job to back his important actions on behalf of Ohio farmers,” Sharp said.last_img read more

How can advertisers target the emerging autonomous car industry?

first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… Autonomous cars present a valuable opportunity for advertisers to grab the attention of potential consumers, who will no longer focus on driving the vehicle.As advertisers learned with mobile, there isn’t one correct way to approach a new platform, and things that worked in the past won’t always work in the future. With that in mind, advertisers must be flexible and willing to try something inventive to capture consumers.See Also: Honda in talks with Google to build self-driving vehiclesOne of the easiest routes into the autonomous car will be through ride-hailing partnerships, provided by Uber, Lyft, or Ford’s unnamed program, set to launch in 2021. None of the current ride-hailing services have ads inside the car, but once the driver is ousted, we could see the interior renovated with a focus on infotainment.That infotainment suite could include multiple screens, a voice assistant, and other platforms for advertisers to use.Riders obviously don’t want to be hounded by adverts, but an ad-supported radio station in an Uber or a Netflix-lite service with adverts inside a Lyft could be two possible ways to interest riders, while also becoming a way for advertising networks to get inside the autonomous car.Both of those possibilities require ride-hailing companies to be open to ads, which we suspect will become more believable once multiple ride-hailing services start to compete heavily for riders. Once the cost of a taxi becomes a zero-sum game, Uber, Google, and Lyft may look to advertisers to subsidize the cost of their war.Waymo may have way mo’ ads to startGoogle’s Waymo might install the ads from the start, as it builds on Google’s advertising platform, which keeps the self-driving car division from falling into administration. If that happens, the adoption of ads in autonomous vehicles will become commonplace a lot quicker.That may not happen however, but it doesn’t mean advertisers can’t leverage the autonomous car revolution in other ways. Uber, Lyft, and Google will undoubtedly take information on the rider of its self-driving car, including geo-location, age, and choice of car, which, when added to the rider’s advertising profile, could be valuable.We expect Google will force users to login to their Google account to access its self-driving platform, so that information will be merged into a profile for advertisers to target. For other firms, like Uber, the data might be sold to third-party advertising networks.

Big Gratitude

Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now It is impossible to be grateful and unhappy at the same time. Choosing one of these emotions makes it impossible to feel the other. “Grateful” and “unhappy” literally can’t occupy the same space at the same time.You have to choose between being grateful or being depressed, too. These emotions are so far apart that from one pole the opposite pole is not accessible to you. Being “grateful” and “depressed” are mutually exclusive emotional states.If you are occupying the feeling of thankfulness, you can’t also occupy the feeling of anger. When you are angry, you are occupying the emotion of fear and the state of need. Thankfulness is not a place of wanting. Thankfulness is a place of abundance.Gratitude is too big to share space with any other state. It literally crowds out all negative emotions. It pushes fear, anger, and sadness out if its way, and it consumes all of your emotional real estate.What are you grateful for right now? What should you be even more grateful for now?last_img read more
