  1. I want to commend the government for hiring more police. I want to thank these brave individuals to enter into the police force for the honorable reasons they are doing so.

    I want to also say, I hope the training, at least some of the training, are being done by highly educated people, with an advance degree in the field/subject they are teaching to the trainees.

    Who is teaching the trainees criminal law, criminal procedures, basic crime scene invention etcetera? Please in Jesus name make it be someone with a degree and preferably an advance degree in that area. PLEASE. I BEG YOU.

  2. Long overdue, and as we all thought and knew that there was a distinct lack of police officers in Antigua to fight the rise in criminal activities, but the likes of Prime Minister Gaston Browne; the Attorney General Steadroy Benjamin and our Police Commissioner Attlee Rodney DARE not admit to the citizens of the country of this increasing problematic issue.

    HOWEVER, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

  3. Kudos to the young folks of taking up a career that will add value to the nation’s security. It will be lovely to see that they pursue the career with dignity.

    Many persons join the force and tend to abuse their status. Others see the force as an avenue to make money, and so they don’t carry out their job with pride.

    Remember if the officers respect us we will respect them.
