Police Department Out in Full Force for New Year’s Celebrations

Chester Williams

And with a few hours to go before 2019 comes to an end, the police department will be out in full force with an objective to keep the murder count and other crimes stagnant. The government sponsored Christmas anti-crime campaign will continue across the country and Commissioner Williams says that known criminals will be monitored to deter them from committing crimes.


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“The police are out there every day, working our butts off, ensuring the safety of our people especially around this time wherever know that people are in a celebratory mood. We have at this time the Christmas anti crime campaign which we cannot sustain throughput the year. As you know it is paid for by the government. It comes at a very hefty cost so at this time we have officers coming out doing extra and then they are paid for it. Apart from that we have other strategies that we employ in terms of going after those persons who we know are involved in gang and other criminal activities with the view from deter them from committing those acts.”
