While crime in Barbados continues to decline, gun-related violence remains a major concern for the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF).

Police have recovered five high-powered weapons for the year and Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith is calling for greater assistance from both the public and at the ports of entry.

The Police Commissioner said so far the police had recovered 44 firearms and 1 505 rounds of assorted ammunition compared to 40 guns and 1 142 rounds last year.

Griffith highlighted the seizure of five high-powered weapons as being “more associated with war zones”. (AD)
