Gangster Squad needs no backup

THE GANGSTER SQUAD will be going it alone in its effort to stamp out violent crimes in Barbados.

That’s because the Royal Barbados Police Force has chosen not to seek international assistance from, or dialogue with, top law enforcement agencies the FBI (the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation) and Interpol (International Police).

“We won’t be seeking any international help with this matter,” the force’s public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch told the SUNDAY SUN. “We firmly believe we have the competency to handle the situation on our own and come up with results,” Welch said.

The police last week assembled a special local squad to deal with a spate of home invasions across various residential areas by armed thugs.
