On the 30th October 2018, Trust Bank Ltd donated office furniture and equipments worth D300, 000 to the Gambia Police Force (GPF). The level of criminal sophistication faced by Police officers continues to evolve, and fighting crime is getting more expensive every year. The Police need proper logistics to enable them perform their jobs satisfactorily.

“By this donation, we are not only providing support to the local Police Force responsible for maintaining law and order but we are also maximizing the creation of shared values. As a Bank with branches in every nook and cranny in the country, we directly depend on the services of the police force for the security of our provincial branches. Our provincial branches have police personnel stationed there since the recent spate of armed robberies in the provinces”; he said.

He went on to say that “The Police Force is more respected than feared for the integrity and genuine public service. The public have high regards for the institution and its personnel who we generally see as competent and disciplined. Now victims of crimes do not hesitate to file complaints because they know justice would be served.”

The Gambia like any other nation relies on a disciplined police force. When such a force requires any form of assistance, it is only fitting that the Gambia’s only truly local bank steps up to the plate; he concluded.
