Cops want overdue pay

A top official of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) has sought to clear the air following complaints by some police officers that they have not been paid for working extra duties since last November.

Barbados TODAY spoke directly to some of the affected officers who said they simply could not understand why it was taking the RBPF so long to pay them for working at a number of events, since the monies had already been paid in to the Force’s accounts department by the organizers of the private functions.

However, the Acting Superintendent of Police in charge of Administration, Timothy Springer, told Barbados TODAY that all officers would have been paid, except those who would have submitted their documentation late.

“It is not the accounts [department’s] fault. It would be those officers who submitted late documentation to be processed,” he said without going into detail about the number of officers affected.

    Listen to me please pay these overworked officers their due. These officers risk their lives with little manpower and resources to protect this country and for this they should be rewarded. The last thing we want is unhappy officers in the line of duty. Politicians getting pay hike make sure the officers and other public servants get theirs.

    Enjoy the excuses guys. The politicians got theirs and you expect to get too? You are only working police officers and you do know you will be neglected. Can’t we all see what is happening on this little rock where you have no recourse?

    Wah A shame, or may i say a sham. When i worked overtime or on my day of rest (day off) I did it to earn a few more bucks and always expected to be paid promptly .When the Organizers have paid in most cases upfront for the services of Police or any kind or security ,there cannot be any legitimate reason why those who would serve in such a capacity not be paid ASAP.
    This kind of behavior only points to poor business practices that bajans in general entertain.
    It is a shameful display of accountability by those placed in charge of insuring these persons get the money they’ve earned.
