Share post:

THE COMMUNITY POLICING thrust by the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) is making a noticeable difference in several communities on the outskirts of The City, according to police.

Speaking at the launch of the second phase of a reading assistance programme at the Pan-American International Insurance Corporation on Cheapside, The City, yesterday morning, head of the Chapman Lane and New Orleans Mobile Unit, Sergeant Jamal Mohan, said they had noticed several positive changes in the youngsters from those areas and the environs since the programmes started.

He said the youngsters were performing better at school, and in both Common Entrance and CXC exams. About 15 children, ranging from age five to 11, participated in the first phase and that number is expected to double during the second stage, which includes teenagers up to 16 years old.

The lawman said there was even a case where a boy, who previously displayed negative behaviours, had made an about-turn and was now expressing an interest in joining the Police Force.
