THE TROUBLE SPOTS of New Orleans and Chapman Lane, St Michael, are about to get a 24-hour police presence. That presence will include members of the Royal Barbados Police Force’s Special Services Unit, its K-9 Unit, mobile patrols and officers walking the beat as well. It will come through the stationing  of the force’s mobile trailer unit  on the western edge of Chapman Lane from today on a small pasture  by the Bridgetown Wastewater Treatment Plant. Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin said yesterday he would not have it any other way.
