Focus on crime, fire fighting
Firefighting techniques and fighting crime was the focus at the Neighbourhood Watch conference held earlier today at Accra Beach Hotel and Resorts.
Officials from both the Barbados Fire Service as well as the Royal Barbados Police Force were present for the session which also attracted some members of the public.
At that conference police’s public relations officer, Inspector David Welch, spoke about the importance of neighbourhood watch groups noting that they usually start because of some concern about crime.
