GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC - The Guyana Police Force and the Guyana Defence Force have launched a joint operation aimed at fighting crime and tackling the reckless use of the country's roadways through the use of drones.

The drones are manned by the Guyana Defence Force to keep surveillance over a number of areas across Georgetown.

The operation titled “Eyes in the Sky” is expected to last for one month, and according to the police, it will involve the use of low flying drones, so citizens should not be alarmed when they see the drones.

The police said the operation will also see an increase in police presence across the city, with additional roadblocks, stop and search, traffic enforcement, roving patrols, and raids.

Additionally, there will be motorcycle and bicycle campaigns, roadblock operations, cordons and searches, and the execution of warrants.

Members of the public have been asked to give their full support and cooperation to the joint services.
