The VP noted that in a bid to complement community efforts the Gambia Police Force installed a solar lighting system to address the electricity needs of the station pending the arrival of the Rural Electrification Project to the area. She closed her statement, saying, “I will assure the community of Old Yundum that the police will continue to be very vigilant in their duties and in the execution of their daily functions in the interest of the community and the entire nation.
