The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) held a news conference on the steps of City Hall in Hamilton today to announce that a constable has been designated to work with the administration of City Hall and stakeholders, to combat antisocial issues.

PC Christopher Douglas, who has been with the BPS for nine years, said he looks forward to playing a key role in bringing about an increased level of policing.

Initially, he will be assisted by PC Teledo Breary, who has 19 years of experience.

Chief Operating Officer at the City, Dwayne Caines, thanked the Bermuda Police Service saying he was cautiously optimistic about this new initiative.

Having a designated officer would better serve the community as issues could be addressed in a timely manner and the ongoing dialogue would foster closer relationships between the Bermuda Police Service, the City and the public. And a safer Hamilton works for everyone, he said.

Also in attendance at today’s news conference were Superintendent Na’imah Astwood Bsc and Inspector Scott Devine.
