Police and Immigration Departments Collaborate In Detention of Illegal Immigrants

Chester Williams

We also heard from the Commissioner of Police on the department’s collaboration with the Immigration Department in the detention of illegal immigrants. ComPol Williams says the police continue to maintain their presence in certain areas to intercept those seeking to enter the country illegally.

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“We have stepped up our presence in the area. That is the reason why we are seeing more and more of them being intercepted. The MIT has been very active along that area, along with immigration. For the most part, whenever we go on these operations we have immigration officers with us to be a part of the team. We look at it from a multi-sectoral approach likewise. It is something that we believe is going to continue and we just need to ensure we maintain our presence in this area so whenever they come we will be there to intercept.”
