News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – “I encourage residents to reflect on their faith and celebrate with their family and friends responsibly,” said Minister of National Security, the Hon. Michael Weeks, JP, MP, as he wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable Good Friday holiday weekend.

He added: “I wish to remind everyone that while celebrating, they should think of their safety and the safety of others. I urge people to avoid drinking and driving and engaging in anti-social behaviour.

“Such behaviour is not only disrespectful to our culture but also puts the safety of our community members at risk.

“If you need Police, dial 911, 295-0011, or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-8477.

“I also wish to express my deepest gratitude to those staff within the Ministry of National Security who are working this holiday weekend to keep us safe including police officers, corrections officers, the Royal Bermuda Regiment, customs officers, firefighters and the Coast Guard. They deliver on our mission of working together to keep you safe.”
