Six police ranks have been dismissed from the Guyana Police for misconduct during the month of October, Police Commissioner (acting) David Ramnarine disclosed on Monday.
Ramnarine said the ranks were dismissed for matters relating to criminal misconduct.
The acting Top Cop did not reveal their identities, he would only say that the six ranks included one subordinate officer and five Constables.
Ramnarine made the disclosure as he prepares to wrap up his stint as acting Commissioner.
Additionally, he said some five ranks, including an Inspector, were also suspended during October pending investigation into misconduct.
Ramnarine said one of the ranks includes a female from the Brickdam Police Station.
She is reportedly unable to account for a .32 firearm that she received from a civilian while on duty.
The acting Commissioner said he considered the matter to be a very serious one.
Back in September, Ramnarine had announced that the Guyana Police Force had fired 30 police officers for various offenses, ranging from corrupt transactions to larceny and robbery.
The acting Police Commissioner had told members of the media that 15 junior ranks, 3 subordinate officers, and 12 constables have been let go by the Force.
Some 15 other were let go earlier in the year.
Ramnarine had said then that there were several others facing serious accusations and they too will be dealt with at the appropriate time.
He assured that the Force appears to be taking a zero tolerance on police officers being involved in any criminal offense.
He believes that in spite of these challenges, most ranks have been upholding the principles of the force.
