Even as the ‘B’ Division police have their work cut out amidst man power, equipment and vehicular shortage. They are prepared to do whatever it takes to keep the peace and the situation under control.
They are prepared to up the ante against law breakers and mischief makers and those bent on disturbing the peace in the country especially during his festive season.
Law breakers are definitely in for a tough time according to Commander of the Police Berbice ‘B’ Division, Assistant Commissioner Brian Joseph. The police have adopted a zero tolerance against mischief makers. Special attention will be paid to those disturbing the peace by playing loud music.
He stated that his men would also be turning up the heat on those who do not desist from lighting and throwing squibs and bombs.
This was in response to an issue that residents in Berbice feel that the police force needs to take tougher action against offenders who are bent in breaking the law especially in cases of noise nuisance and road rage.
People have been constantly complaining about the chronic and unending disturbances being caused by those who are allowed to continue for the entire day and night disturbing the peace without much intervention from the relevant authorities despite numerous complaints.
The Commander gave the assurance that the police are working to address the issue. “Like before, we will arrest noise makers and those selling squibs and bombs; we know who those persons are and they will be dealt with.
“A number of persons have been dealt with already; their ‘boom boxes’ have been seized whilst others have been placed before the courts. Nobody is above the law and if any one feels so, we have news for him. Everybody will be treated the same way. We have zero tolerance approach towards this matter.”
He said that the police are all the time taking different initiatives in respect to law enforcement. He is urging the public to inform the police and to report to any senior officer if the police do not take action.
He also stated that action will be taken against those playing loud music in vehicles, especially those in parked vehicles outside popular ‘hang out’ spots and along Main Street, New Amsterdam. “As long as the law permits, action will be taken. The police are already monitoring some of those areas.”
With respect to those bent on selling and lighting squibs and bombs during the Christmas season. The police will step up the campaign against those persons and they will be prosecuted again.
