Guard of honour
MERE WEEKS into his posting to the Magistrates’ Court, security officer David Livingstone Bynoe prevented what could have been a major security incident at the Coleridge Street compound.
It was Bynoe who stopped a man, intent on entering the precincts, who was later found to be carrying a gun.
On Tuesday, the former Barbados Defence Force soldier was showered with praise and gifts and hailed as a hero in a ceremony attended by magistrates and members of the Registration Department in a ceremony in Court No. 1 of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.
But the security officer stressed he was just doing what his job commanded him to do. And he would do it again, if the need arose. (HLE)
