Police concerned about Grand Kadooment route
THE ROYAL BARBADOS POLICE FORCE (RBPF) is concerned about the exponential growth of the two National Cultural Foundation (NCF) organised street parades as well as the increasing number of events being hosted simultaneously during the Crop Over Festival.
Acting Superintendent Bruce Rowe said a major concern about Grand Kadooment, the climax of the festival was the route it took from the National Stadium to Spring Garden Highway.
“Grand Kadooment route is [a challenge] even though it is a daylight event. It passes through some areas that we have great, great concern about . . . and we have to take all of these things into consideration in our planning,” he said.
Rowe, speaking at a press conference at the National Cultural Foundation yesterday about the Foreday Morning Jam, said the event also posed a security risk since it was an “open event”. (LK)
