Police to increase presence during Christmas season; urge citizens to be more vigilant

The Police Service has vowed to increase its presence across the country during the Christmas season and is urging members of the public to be more vigilant as they go about their business for Christmas.

The following is a statement by acting ASP Michael Pierre today.

"The Christmas holiday season is at hand and it is a time when there is heightened commercial activity throughout the country.

This increase in spending presents an opportunity, for those with criminal intent, to prey on persons who may unwittingly make themselves easy targets or victims of crime.
