The Special Security Unit of the Royal Barbados Police Force that was set up to protect revellers during Crop Over has had enough of the current set-up of the Foreday Morning Jam.
And when the top brass of the force meets with the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) later this month to review the 2013 Crop Over Festival, recommendations could be made for the J’Ouvert section of the country’s festival to be changed in a number of ways.
One recommendation is that the jam be staged on a separate day from any other Crop Over event. Another is to have the route lengthened so security personnel can better utilize their resources.
Assistant Superintendent Bruce Rowe, who was in charge of the force’s security for Crop Over 2013, told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday that Foreday Morning Jam continued to be the biggest headache the police faced.
“We are pretty happy with how the entire festival went, but Foreday Morning Jam continues to provide us with the most problems and the most headaches,” Rowe revealed.
