‘Win back society’ together
It is important for all stakeholders to work together for the good of Barbados, Rev. Curtis Goodridge of the St Lucy Parish Church believes.
“If we are to win back this society for the Lord, the church, school, home, Government and the Royal Barbados Police Force must be in partnership,” the rector said at a church service at the St Lucy Parish Church to commemorate Police Week.
“We are producing in our land today a generation of vipers who have no respect for the dignity of human life, a generation that is going nowhere fast. We need not bury our heads in the sand and pretend all is nice and rosy in society for indeed there are ugly things occurring in this country,” he told the congregation.
Goodridge also praised the work of the Royal Barbados Police Force, which he said needed society’s support as policing was the responsibility of everyone.
The service was attended by Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite; Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin; Deputy Commissioner Bertie Hinds; Chief of Staff of the Barbados Defence Force Colonel Alvin Quintyne; and Chief Fire Officer Wilfred Marshall as well as island constables and officers from the Caribbean and the New York Police Department.
