Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you will now have a better understanding and appreciation of the work we do. We would like the people of Guyana to know that we do not conduct investigations into criminal offences; the members of the various law enforcement agencies conduct the necessary investigations and then forward the files to us for legal advice. We give personal and individualized attention to each police file, sifting through thousands of statements annually because each case is important to us as it is to you. We are committed to hard work, service, justice, transparency and integrity. We work to ensure that justice is done in each case. We work for justice and we work for you.
