ATTORNEY GENERAL DALE MARSHALL says the Royal Barbados Police Force will have a “significant” role as the authorities move to reduce violence in schools.

Calling last Friday’s stabbing death of 16-year-old Frederick Smith Secondary School student Temario Holder “a national tragedy”, Marshall said he asked the Commissioner of Police to meet with Ministry of Education officials “to try to bring a policing perspective into how we deal with these issues”.

He was speaking to the media yesterday evening at Hilton Barbados Resort after the end of the Annual Inter-American Development Bank Group Caribbean Civil Society Meeting.

The Attorney General said now was not the time for finger-pointing or knee-jerk reactions, as all Barbadians needed to be “putting our heads together to see how we can deal with this issue”. (SC)
