No ‘Gangster Squad’ in police force.

There is no such unit in the Royal Barbados Police Force called the ‘Gangster Squad.’

That is according to police public relations officer, Acting Assistant Superintendent, David Welch in reference to  an article which was published in the media.

According to Welch, the article appeared to be purporting that there is a ‘Gangster Squad’ established within the Royal Barbados Police Force.

“We wish to state that no such gangster squad exists within the Force as mentioned in the article to deal with any recent spate of aggravated burglaries or any crimes within the island. We disassociate ourselves from the notion of a Gangster Squad,” Welch said in a press release.

“With respect to the recent spate of aggravated burglaries and robberies, a special investigative team was put in place to deal with these crimes.

“We wish to assure the citizens of Barbados that we have already made progress in respect to some of these aggravated burglaries and robberies and we continue to make steady progress in these matters. We thank the members of the public for their cooperation so far and we request them to report any suspicious activities,” the release further stated.

Welch said that while sometimes during policing investigations it was sometimes “necessary to seek expertise in areas which are not available to us, at this stage of these particular investigations there was no need for such assistance.”

    So it was a one-man squad now disbanded pending resolution of Everton Gitten’s tenure with the force? And that was a question.
