Despite a recent spate of shootings which have resulted in the deaths of two men, the island’s top cop is insisting that the Royal Barbados Police Force doesn’t want Barbadians to panic.

And Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith wants Barbadians to stop getting carried away every time a murder or a shooting occurs.

Speaking to the SATURDAY SUN yesterday evening on the heels of two murders in the space of three days, Griffith revealed that all major crimes for the year were down when compared to previous years.

“We do not have an upsurge in crime in Barbados,” he maintained. “We have had five murders for the year and that is significantly below last year’s numbers.”
