Adriel Brathwaite calls for RSS to get better funding, yet denies Barbados cops improved salaries

The Canadian High Commission just donated $166,000 towards the upkeep of the Regional Security System (RSS) whereby Officers & Military receive not only better training but more appropriate training such as Debating & Public Speaking skills which in turn would raise the bar on a typical Caribbean Officer’s Analytical skills while interacting with their public.

Nevertheless, what was ironic is Barbadian Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite makes an appeal for the RSS to have more Caricom members and for its current cadre of 7 members to place more monies into the West Indian syndication of both Police and Military forces in making sure Illegal Narco-Trafficking is kept to a minimum if not eradicated.

The reason why it should be considered Ironic is back in April this year when the Bajan Reporter approached the AG on the matter of wages and Mr Brathwaite sought to dodge the matter every way but to acknowledge that Bajan Cops need a serious Salary redress and in a hurry.

With 85.1% on a passing grade of 60%, 25 year old ASP Kamecia Blake was this RSS Staff & Command's Valedictorian

If he cannot see his way to even acknowledging Officers should have wages under scrutiny then how can he appeal to the entire region to do what cannot in a local capacity?
