THE ROYAL BARBADOS POLICE FORCE received four new segways thanks to the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association and the Tourism Development Corporation (TDC).
The outgoing chief executive officer of the BHTA Sue Springer said the donation also included replacement batteries for previously donated segways and that it came at a cost of $80 000.
The two-wheeled motorised personal vehicles and batteries were handed over today at police headquarters on Roebuck Street, The City.
The handover was attended by police officials including Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith, who thanked the organisations for their donations.
Springer pledged the organisations continued support to the RBPF.
“We always try and work with the police; they do an incredible job. There’s always need for additional equipment and assistance and wherever we can sir, please let us know and we will certainly be there,” she said. (TG)
