Restoring order the mission


Share post:

Over the next three months, the Barbados Police Service, in conjunction with the Barbados Defence Force, will be increasing visibility in some crime hot spots

Commissioner of Police Richard Boyce says Operation Restore Order will build upon the work already done by the 86-member task force in which there were 337 stop-and-search of vehicles and 1 098 people were checked over the last two weeks.

“Going forward, persons in each and every community must understand that we are not at war with any persons in the island. There is no war against police versus the bad boys or the persons who engage in the wanton use of firearms. We will do everything within the four corners of the law to deal with the situation.

“Persons will see police officers and their support BDF personnel moving around. My advice to persons is not to get in our way, do not intervene, do not hamper or make our job more difficult,” he said.

“My message to the criminals is that we are serious about this operation. We intend to go after you and we intend to take these guns out of persons’ hands. We intend to come after you 24/7 – day and night we will be there.” (Nation News)
