GPF issues warning to vendors who sells firecrackers

The Guyana Police Force recognizes that in the celebration of Diwali and thereafter leading into the festive season of Christmas, there usually be an increase in the sale of firecrackers and other similar kinds of explosives that are being used to culminate or recognize the season.

The Force is hereby issuing a stern warning to those who sell these explosives which contribute a lot to serious bodily harm and injury to both users and innocent bystanders. There were instances in the past when both children and adults experienced grievous bodily harm, during the use of these firecrackers and we urged all concerned to exercise the necessary care and caution when deciding to allow themselves to engage in the purchase of firecrackers.

Persons who are caught selling or found in possession thereof will be prosecuted and face the consequences of the law to whatever level of their involvement as it relates to acquiring and the use of these explosives without a permit from the appropriate authority.
