Construction work is moving apace on the new ‘E’ Division (Linden- Kwakwani) Headquarters’ modern facility, located at Mackenzie, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice).The building, which is being reconstructed inside the compound of the Mackenzie Police Station, is just about 50 percent complete.Work had commenced last December, after the former structure was demolished to facilitate reconstruction of a more modern policing facility, equipped with all modern amenities. This was made possible through a more-than-$80 million loanThe new ‘E’ Division Police Headquarters under constructionfrom the Government of Guyana, through the Inter- American Development Bank (IDB).According to ‘E’ Division Commander Fazil Karimbaksh, the project is expected to take up to 5 months to be completed. The larger, two-storeyed facility which is being constructed will measure 135 feet by 45 feet.Commander Karimbaksh has said he is satisfied with the work which has so far been completed. “The work is going according to schedule. I would say it’s about 50 percent complete. They’re doing the departments, then they will put the upper flat and the roof… They’re moving apace…We hope it is completed on time, according to schedule,” he noted.The Commander had previously stated that the modern facility, when completed, would bring about an ease in the state of affairs at the station, as he pointed out that the previous facility was inadequately spaced, and as a result, various departments were not established due to the lack of space at the Police Station. Karimbaksh, however, noted that this issue is expected to be solved when the new building comes on stream.“It will greatly assist us, because (in) the previous building we were cramped for space, and a lot of our departments we had to decentralize them to other stations. So, we’re very appreciative of this new building that’s going to come on stream, and it will house all our departments. So the people of Region 10 in particular will have better service, and we will be operating at our full capacity in terms of our departments. It will be more comfortable, too”, Karimbaksh had said.Presently the Police department is operating out of make shift offices within its compound, in an effort to facilitate the reconstruction process.
