While crime in Barbados continues to decline, gun-related violence remains a major concern for the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF).

Police have recovered five high-powered weapons for the year and Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith is calling for greater assistance from both the public and at the ports of entry.
