The Royal Barbados Police Force will implement a zero tolerance policy for all promotions in the wake of the shooting death of Don Cox at a Guinness Rush Hour event at Carrington Village, St Thomas, on July 13.
“The force is definitely concerned with reports of disorderly conduct at these events,” police public relations officer Inspector David Welch told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
He noted that the force had reviewed all aspects of the application process for such promotional events, and would immediately start assessing them on a case-by-case basis.
“The conditions set down will be absolute. We expect total compliance with the conditions, especially with regard to shut-off times and noise levels, which include noise of persons as well.”
He said patrols would also be heightened at any bar venues where Guinness Rush Hour events were being staged.
