AG wants new retirement age for police
If Attorney General Dale Marshall has his way, police could begin retiring from as early as age 45, just like members of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF).
He was speaking yesterday to members of the Royal Barbados Police Force at their annual conference at Solidarity House.
“It is a personal concern of mine that members of the Royal Barbados Police Force are not treated on the same footing as members of the Barbados Defence Force. I think you will know that BDF membersget to retire at age 45 in some instances and 55 in some others.
Moreover, Marshall said they needed to find ways to improve officers’ conditions and where possible, lower their retirement age. (RA)
