Kaieteur News – April 24, 2008

After more than 50 years of existence, the Police Wives’ Association has its own office. The office, which is located in the Police Officers’ Mess compound, was officially declared open by Deputy Commissioner Edward Wills and will serve to improve the work of the organization.

As the name suggests, the Police Wives’ Association is made up of the spouses of police officers and is usually headed by the wife of the serving Commissioner of Police.

It operates the Juliet Griffith Day Care Centre at Eve Leary and conducts many social activities aimed at empowering women both within and outside of the Guyana Police Force.

The Police Wives’ Association was formed in 1953 and was the brainchild of Mrs. Juliet Griffith, the wife of a former Senior Superintendent of Police.  

In his feature address at the formal opening of the office last Saturday, Deputy Commissioner Wills pledged the continued support of the force and urged the women’s organisation to expand its membership.

The body will be celebrating its anniversary with a week of activities beginning on May 4.

    Congratulations on your achievements.

    You are a role model and an encouragement to us. Our Kenyan police wives are geared towards achieving this. If you would, please mentor us to realize the goal of having an active police wives association in Kenya. We have been looking for a partner to help this come to reality.

    Please get in touch and extend your growth to help other world police wives.

    Yours friend
