Police officers at the District “E” Station in St. Peter have been without a vehicle for three days.
While sources within the force said the absence of the vehicle was impacting police operations in St. Peter, when contacted this evening a senior officer of the Northern Division told Barbados TODAY that our enquiry was “a petty one” and he did not want to engage questions on the matter.
“You should call back the police officer who called you and ask him why there is no vehicle,” retorted the person on the line.
He also advised that Barbados TODAY address its concerns to Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin. Dottin could not be reached for comment.
However, police Public Relations Officer, Inspector David Welch said there are other mechanisms in place to respond to calls, if a station is without a vehicle. (EJ)
