Today, the Democratic Labour Party is commending the Minister of Home Affairs, Hon. Adriel Brathwaite for his very focused and determined manner in making the accommodation requirements of the Police officers a priority. The party is aware of the hard work engaged by the members of the Royal Barbados Police Force and are working to meet their needs.
The recent reopening of the Black Rock Police sub-station is a clear signal that this government continues to deliver. That’s a FACT.
The Barbados Labour Party recently signaled it is ready for the Battle of politics. The first and only priority of the opposition is to do battle .Barbadians, must take note of the muscle language OFTEN used by the opposition party and appreciate it is only a peek at what direction it wants to take our country. This party, this government will not be distracted by the public relations cocktails sips that are held to prove that opposition party members love each other. Instead, we are focused on delivering.
The Minister of Home Affairs has delivered against the background of an opposition party seeking to destroy and divide this great country on a platform of corrosive politics. It is clear for all to see our hard working Minister of Home Affairs is attaching importance to delivering on his promises. As a government, we have taken note of the efforts of all employees in the public service.
It’s a FACT that Barbados will soon have two ultramodern police stations located at Cane Garden and Hastings respectively. Barbadians can expect a massive boost in the delivery of police service throughout the island. The Cane Garden project which is near completion will offer close to 13 000 square feet of new space for Police officers to function in. While an additional Court building will be available to our legal system.
In Bridgetown the barracks at Central Police station are under renovations and will soon be completed.
In the recent past the Minister of Home Affairs saw to it that the Barbados Fire service and our country benefitted with the handing over of two (2) new Fire tenders.
These additions to the fleet represent a long overdue upgrade of the Fire service. The Government will shortly bring closure to the renovations and upgrade of the Arch Hall Fire station where accommodations for better ongoing training of Fire Officers will occur.
It is to the credit of the Minister of Home Affairs the Hon Adriel Brathwaite, our essential service personnel are given priority. We accepted more can be done but we also commend the lot that is done with little.
