The Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) has expressed concern that some members of the public have been making passes purporting to be official emergency passes and presenting them to authorities to facilitate their movement on the streets of Barbados during the curfew.
Additionally, persons have been transferring passes among themselves and other family members or friends.
Police, however, warn that it is an offence to be outside your residence during curfew hours unless you fall in the category of persons that have been officially exempted and have applied for and granted an official emergency pass.
Any person found on the streets or other public places without legitimate authority will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
The RBPF is, therefore, advising all members of the public to ensure they carry some form of official picture identification whilst travelling the streets during the curfew. (RBPF)
