A handover ceremony was held at police headquarters this week where the Royal Bahamas Police Force received a donation of twenty new vehicles from the United States.

Prime Minister, the Hon. Philip Davis attended the ceremony where he delivered remarks. “I want the Bahamians to know that I appreciate that all Bahamians deserve safer neighbourhoods. Crime and the fear of crime to often pervade daily life undermining and limiting our ability to build stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities. Now residents will be able to see and feel an increased police presence and the police will have new capacity to respond quickly to any criminal activity.”

US Charge D’ Affaires, Usha Pitts was also at the event. She told attendees the these new vehicles in addition to vehicles donated previously were donated in response to Hurricane Dorian.
