Gambia: Police Force Boosted

The Gambia Police Force (GPF) recently received a donation of 10 fully equipped first aid boxes and stretchers from the Gambia Red Cross Society (GRCS) during a brief presentation ceremony held at the police headquarters in Banjul.

Speaking at the ceremony, the deputy inspector general of the GPF, Eward T. Sambou, who received the items on behalf of the police, expressed gratitude to the humanitarian body on behalf of the institution. "We are here to prevent crime and protect life and property and so the items donated will go a long way in helping us to achieve this," he stated.

The GPF No.2 said the relationship between the two institutions has been a longstanding one , and recalled that the GRCS had earlier provided first aid training for some police officers in Banjul.

The secretary general of the GRC, Bai Cham, reiterated that their mission continues to be saving lives, thus assuring that their relationship with the police will continue to be strengthened.
