Barbados Police have New Equipment to Fight Crime – Can’t use ’til laws are added or Amended!
Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite says a new electronic interviewing and identification parade system for the Royal Barbados Police Force should be in place in another six months.
There were demonstrations of the system at the District “A” Police Station and at the Roebuck Street headquarters Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Brathwaite says the system will be fully transparent and should remove arguments from the public about lawmen coercing confessions from accused persons. It is recommended that the system be used with the most serious offences.
The Attorney General was accompanied on the tour by Police Commissioner, Darwin Dottin.
Mr. Brathwaite says he expects to have legislation supporting the new technologies in place by the time the system is implemented island wide.
