Security Services Guyana
Guyana located on the northern coast of South America is today listed as one of the continent’s poorest countries with an annual average income of $4,000 U.S dollars. As in all developing countries, this presents its own risks, such as opportunistic crime, corruption and anti-government demonstrations amongst others.
Traveling during night time hours within Georgetown has been advised against from other Governments due to muggings from local gangs. This has been evident in the past when crimes have been reported of gangs following victims from the International airport. Police response capability is low and often respond to criminal activities with the use of firearms, this generates an additional residual risk for any innocents being within the area.
Fatal road traffic incidents remain a common problem and often caused by unsafe driving practices.
With one of the highest oil reserve rates in the world, Guyana promises potential business opportunities however marred by apparent election fraud in March 2020, the country has faced outbreaks of violence and has potential for furthermore anti-government protests and disturbance due to the political crisis. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time during one of these outbreaks of violence can significantly increase risk to travelers.
In 2018 a fire was reported in a hotel within Georgetown. Even though the fire caused no deaths or injuries it was reported that the hotel’s fire alarm system was not functioning, and fire doors locked. Hotels should be vetted before travel to ensure they meet international standards and in compliance with local laws and regulations.
