This follows training activites in this area with two police officers having completed a pilot training programme in Miami, United States . Otherother ranks are pursuing degrees in aeronautical engineering at the Art Williams and Harry Wendt Aeronautical Engineering School, at Ogle, East Coast Demerara.Hicken also noted that police stations are undergoing continuous rehabilitation and reconstruction across the country.
