By Aaron Humes: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and police are gearing up for one of their busiest – and usually least wonderful – times of the year.
Police Commissioner Chester Williams told us this year’s campaign will be expanded beyond the usual handouts of pamphlets with safety tips against robbery and burglary and increased presence around businesses.
“This time we want to expand it to different areas; and we also want to include… the issuing of pamphlets that will give people advice and safety tips, not only safety tips from robberies or burglaries but also traffic-related and domestic violence.”
On the latter, the Commissioner said he had spoken to the minister of Human Development Dolores Balderamos-Garcia about creating a domestic violence sensitization campaign. As he put it, too many have died at the hands of those who claim to love them, and if it cannot be stopped, at least it can be slowed down.
So look out for the men and women in khaki on a highway or byway near you throughout the month of December.
