Block watch


Share post:

A SENIOR LAWMAN yesterday served notice on people who hang out on “lawless blocks” in Royal Barbados Police Force’s Northern Division that lawmen are coming for them.

“By the end of this year there should be no lawless blocks . . . in the Northern Division,” said Senior Superintendent Lybron Sobers at a meeting for people with businesses in St Thomas. St Andrew and St Joseph at The Lester Vaughan School.

“We have increased the number of community police officers to assist us in this. Our community officers will be interacting with persons on the block. We’ve already asked you at our church service in St Andrew . . . this month to allow the community officers to come to your home and into your businesses to sit down,” he added.

Sobers said, however, that it might not be safe for people to approach the police or for the officers to approach them on the streets, as some people might assume they were giving the officers information. (Green Bananas Media)
