Police roll out full holiday plan
The Royal Barbados Police Force moves into high gear with its Christmas season anti-crime fighting plan.
Effective Monday, more police officers would be hitting the streets and placed at strategic locations throughout the country.
The announcement was made at an impromptu press briefing this afternoon by acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Erwin Boyce.
“The number of police officers vary from division to division. [In] the city and the shopping centres on the outskirts of the city [such as] Warrens, Sheraton and Sky Mall you’re going to see a more intense presence. So the numbers vary in terms of the deployment strategies that we would use and there would be both plainclothes and uniformed officers as well,” he said.
Even as he expressed confidence in the abilities of law enforcement officers, the acting assistant commissioner appealed to residents to provide information on crimes, stating the police cannot do it alone.
“We look forward for your support,” he said. “There will be a strong traffic enforcement exercise and we ask that people corporate with us.”
