Police tell business owners to be vigilant
The police have been telling Barbadian business owners to be extra vigilant this coming Yuletide Season because of the heightened possibility of crime occurring.
During a meeting today with business leaders in the Warrens, St Michael area, crime prevention officer with the Royal Barbados Police Force Stephen Griffith said this advice was being given largely because of the tough economic times.
He said business people needed to watch out for counterfeit currency and for shoppers causing distractions in businesses simply to facilitate shoplifters.
“If you do not have electronic surveillance, consider it,” he suggested during the meeting in which he told the business people to be careful about how and at what times they sent large sums of money to the bank.
The meeting at Simpson Motors attracted representatives from that company as well as from CIBC First Caribbean Bank, the Warrens Medical Centre, Popular Discounts, Chefette Restaurants, Forever Glam and other businesses. (TY)
