Peace Corps now hires armed vehicles

The Guyana Peace Corps now hires armed vehicles to escort Peace Corps vehicles to the airport as an extra precautionary measure. While I never felt like a target in Guyana, other than for petty crimes like pick pocketing, I’m glad that the Peace Corps is taking the extra step to further ensure the safety of the volunteers.

Although I have many disappointments regarding the Peace Corps, I must commend their security officer. He makes a valiant effort to ensure volunteer safety among an increasingly volatile and uncertain environment.
