Bajan cops fighting gun crime in Antigua
ST. JOHN’S — A team of senior officers from the Royal Barbados Police Force are on island to lend their assistance in probing recent gun-related criminal activity, a release from the Ministry of National Security said.
The four specialists – two assistant superintendents, an inspector and a sergeant – will be directing special attention to the recent slaying of Susan Powell, the communiqu√ read.
They arrived just over a week after both Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer and Minister of National Security Dr. Errol Curt indicated that they would be seeking assistance from regional and international partners to assist local law enforcement in investigating the recent upsurge in crime here.
“With the urgency of the situation ever present, the four officers … have been brought in to complement the work of the local officers,” the release said.
Ministry of National Security, “Dr. (Errrol) Cort expressed thanks to the Government of Barbados and to the Royal Barbados Police Force for availing these senior officers to travel to Antigua”. (Antigua Observer)
