COMMISSIONER OF POLICE Tyrone Griffith is assuring Barbadians that the Royal Barbados Police Force will do all within its power to quell the recent upsurge in crime.
“I know we have started the year not so comforting, but I am sure, with the dedicated officers that I have here, that we will pull it back and make sure that all goes well for the remainder of the year.
“We are the ones who can bring that level of reassurance to the public of Barbados that if crime is committed, we will go after those criminals, and at the same time we will be there to ensure that all civic-minded Barbadians can go about their business in a peaceful and tranquil way without too much disturbance,” he said.
He was speaking after 45 officers were given promotion letters – three inspectors, 17 station sergeants and 25 sergeants.
Additionally, seven officers who were promoted last July – three inspectors, three station sergeants and a sergeant – also received their papers during the ceremony at Prince Cave Hall, District “A” Police Station, Station Hill, St Michael. (RA)
