Barbados’ Top Cop Says Crime Down 34 Percent

Barbados Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith reported that major crime declined by 34% over the past six months, compared to the same period last year.

Though not giving a breakdown in a press release Friday, he lauded his officers for their efforts but urged them not to become complacent even as they faced new challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, NationNews reported.

“To each and every police officer across all uniform and plain-clothes sections of the force, I say thanks for a job well done so far,” Griffith said. “Special mention must be made of those members of the police band who set aside their instruments to join hands with their colleagues in the regular force during this rather challenging period. That being said, it would be remiss of me if I did not mention that corps of civilian members of staff, who must be commended for their supporting roles as well.”

The commissioner told his officers not to lose sight of the challenges presented as they continued their work with strategic partners to create an environment where all felt safe.

“We are indeed grateful to those non-governmental organizations which demonstrated their care and concern for us by contributing significantly towards the provision of personal protective equipment and sanitizing materials,” he said.

He commended Barbadians for adhering to the curfews that were in place, wearing their masks and adhering to social distancing protocols.
