Police of Barbados watching Kadooment: ZERO TOLERANCE FOR UNLAWFUL ENTRY INTO A BAND

On Foreday Morning Jump Up and Kadooment Day, there are a number of persons who enter bands of which they are not members. Such entry into a band is deemed unlawful. A person who is not a member of a band or who is not a person authorized to be in that band shall not enter a band without permission.

Any person who:-

a. unlawfully enters a band after having been forbidden to do so by an authorized person; or
b. uses threatening or abusive words or behaviour or engages in disorderly behaviour likely to constitute harassment or cause alarm or distress to any member of the band for the purpose of securing entry into the band either for himself or for any other person; or
c. fails to leave the band after he has been directed to do so by an authorized person, is guilty of an offence.

A person who is guilty of an offence under this Part is liable on summary conviction to a fine of $5,000 or to imprisonment for 6 months or to both.
