14 cops for Dominica

Social Share

Fourteen lawmen should be in Dominica today to help restore law and order as that island tries to recover from the pummelling it got from Hurricane Maria.

This has been revealed by Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite, who said they would be joining firemen who were already there as officials from the Coastal Zone Management Unit (CZMU) and other Barbadian personnel fan out across the Caribbean to assist islands that took hits from recent hurricanes.

Brathwaite was speaking at a church service yesterday at Messiah’s House Wesleyan Holiness Church, Massiah Street, St John, to mark the start of Fire Week.

He said the 14 police officers were scheduled to leave last night, while a team of scientists from the CZMU were already in the Turks and Caicos Islands and would be joined by another cadre shortly. Firemen, he added, were already in the British Virgin Islands and Dominica. (HLE)
