The Police say they continue to encourage the public to come forward with information that can assist with solving and preventing crime in Antigua & Barbuda. All information will be held in the strictest of confidence.

  1. VAGUE PRESS RELEASE

    ‘…Saturday 22 to Monday 24th September 2018!’

    Pretty long time to martial and present details.

    If the Security forces cannot provide credible and factual numerical
    information’ to substantiate claims of a recovered cache of
    arms and ammunition, then such omission is capable of leading to
    public speculations, while triggering alarm and anxiety in the citizenry.
