Speaking at the ceremony, Frank Uche, Managing Director of Gamstar Insurance Company Limited, revealed that the material given were meant to keep officers working in that place abreast of what is happening within and around their immediate surroundings.
"This television will give the officers the opportunity to know what is exactly happening within the country and beyond, as they are far from the capital city," he added.
According to Uche, Gamstar has been operating in The Gambia for over twenty years and has been very supportive of the country in many sectors such as education, sports and the NEA civil society.
He noted that his company has a long term history with the security, as they have offered series of services to the army and the police.
The Gamstar boss says his company is focusing not only in the Greater Banjul Area; their support reaches the length and breadth of the country.
For his part, Alhagie Bai Ndongo Faal, vice chairman IGI Gamstar Insurance Company Limited, says Gamstar is not only giving but also recruiting young Gambians, developing their capacity in the field, absorbing some and taking the rest to other institutions.
Gamstar has also been recruiting Senegalese students from Saint Michel for months, he said, adding that Gamstar supports annual competition for NISA and also provides subject prizes to various schools such as Marina International,

While thanking Gamstar for its continual support to the security apparatus, Mr Saho assured the donors that the item would be used prudently.
