New system to apply for Police Certificate of Character


The Royal Barbados Police Force is introducing an appointment system to enhance the current method of applying for Certificates of Character.

Starting next Monday, members of the public who are desirous of applying for a Certificate of Character will be required to make an appointment by calling telephone numbers 430 7670, or 430 7671, Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Police say the current walk-in system will still be facilitated during the week of the February 20th..

However, effective Monday, February 27, applications will be by appointments only.

    A step in the right direction?

    Can you imagine what those phone lines will be like?

    They will be unable to schedule all those appointments. I am positive it will take even longer.

    This is the civil service we are talking about and the police at that not the US Embassy. The personnel in that department are impolite at most times and I can only imagine how we will be treated now on the phone.

    The new system will be just as bad or worse, where are all the educated people that barbados say that they have and can`t get nothing to work, well send some of them overseas to some country that has millions of people to see how some of these things are done,e g, the motor vehicle, the courts, garbage removal, the transportation service is in shambles, persons have to get to their jobs on time, every time. NYC transports more than 5 million people per day to their destinations. With the narrow roads in barbados, some one is speaking of express lanes for their buses. Changes, changes and things remain the same.

    I wish I had a business with all these people, wanting to bring me money,the first thing I would do, is move lots of officers, who are “busy doing nothing”, to this area since the demand out weights the supply.The government want revenue but will not hire cashiers,you have to wait hours to pay anything from A – Z in any government department.If you take a trip in Swan Street to Cherish Cosmotique,any direction you turn you can find a cashier.This is because collecting money is one of the most important aspects of keeping your business alive.

    All I will say is stupid, stupid. This is no improvement. The telephone systems will be overloaded with calls. People will get frustrated. We back to square one. Why not go electronic? People this is the age of technology though. Stupse and more stupse

    Non-sense you call for an appointment and get a date 2 months later. Seriously this is suppose to be an improvement? After trying to call in numberous times for an hour then to get a date 2 months later. Don’t see no improvement in this “improved system”!
