By Kiana WilburgWhile the political parties and the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) continue apace with preparations for the May 11 Regional and General Elections, so is the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).Colonel Enoch GaskinYesterday in an interview with Kaieteur News, Chairman of the Joint Services Training Committee, Colonel Enoch Gaskin, said that when it comes to election preparedness,Howard Wilson Womens Jersey, everything so far is on track.He said that elections are treated as a routine operation and there are phases of that preparation process. Colonel Gaskin said that the first thing they do is to hold a study day for officers and sergeants. This, he explained, is to remind them about the laws and rules governing their conduct in internal security operations, in support of the Guyana Police Force,Teemu Selanne Ducks Throwback Jersey, in the preservation of law and order.The Committee Chairman said that the Police Force is always the lead in such cases and the army would provide the necessary support.Gaskin asserted that after the study, officers go through a command exercise which involves sitting at a round table and coaching members on various scenarios,Walt Aikens Dolphins Jersey, and what is the best possible reaction to certain instances during the election period.He said that the Committee tries to concentrate on training at two levels where junior commanders are trained to make decisions and finally the troops are taken through various drills.The Colonel said that the officers go through their individual training as it relates to improving competence and also on what is expected of them in all conceivable ranges of security operations. He said, too, that the same thing is done at the Joint Services level where its members, together with the Guyana Police Force, Prison Services and the Guyana Fire Service, go through the same procedures so that they can be prepared for any scenario and respond cohesively.Once elections are called, Gaskin said that the ranks remain in barracks, but if it becomes necessary for them to go out,Sergio Romo Jersey, they would be ready and prepared to do so.He said that the first two stages of the election preparedness exercises are completed and they are well advanced in terms of the individual preparation of the troops.Gaskin sought to emphasize that training in the Joint Services is done every year and not only at elections time. He reminded that last December – and leading into 2015 – joint patrols with the Guyana Defence Force and the Police Force were conducted, as it is all part and parcel of its modus operandi.Some of the situations the GDF officials are coached on he said,Jack Ham Steelers Jersey, would be on the normal crowd control tactics, dealing with road blocks,Shannon Sharpe Broncos Jersey, traffic control operations, and of course, more “specialized operations.”“Remember, we have a constitutional mandate to defend the territorial integrity of this country and to assist in the preservation of law and order, even during election, and nothing will prevent us from executing that mandate,” Colonel Gaskin concluded.
