Bank Limited last Tuesday donated office equipment worth 300,000 dalasis to
Gambia Police Force (GPF) held at the police headquarters in Banjul. The
equipment consists of four executive desks, four executive chairs, two computer
sets and two printers.
Police Superintendent Buba Ceesay commended the bank for their continued support to the country’s Police Force, saying their efforts have been appreciated.
Assistant Inspector General of Police Ebrima Bah said the donation was provided at the right time when the Police were in dire need of equipment like the donated ones. “The police need to function and that cannot be possible without equipment. In modern police operations, computer technology is very crucial. This donation will help a long way to facilitate our operations as far as policing is concerned,” he said.
He challenged other stakeholders to lend a helping hand to the GPF in various ways, like the banking sector saying they cannot operate in isolation. “So in for you to operate in a very peaceful environment the police need to be capacitated and equipped.”
Dodou Nyang, the bank’s head of retail banking said in every country the police are one of the most important entities responsible of providing peace and security. “The image that the GPF project is a good one for the country and they cannot be thanked enough as they ensure order in the country as well as a deterrent for unscrupulous people in the country,” he said.
Mr. Nyang said Trust Bank was vulnerable as one of the major banks in the provinces but at all their 24 provincial branches, GPF has provided 24 hours armed guards to secure the bank. “Trust bank has the highest number of customers from the police force in The Gambia.”
