The Police Administration recently announced that with immediate effect, the All Saints Police Station will be closed to the public until further notice.
According o law enforcement, this closure was brought about as a result of poor working conditions affecting the day to day operations at the station.
Police Officers who are now attached to All Saints Police Station will be temporarily relocated to Liberta Police Station, where they will continue to offer the relevant services to the residents of All Saints and the surrounding areas.
Residents of the area are further assured of an increase in both mobile and foot patrols by the police until normal operations resumes at All Saints Police Station,” the police said in a news release.
Members of the public can contact the station at 460-1001 for any further information.
Meanwhile, the police administration is asking for the general public’s cooperation and support in the matter, as they seek to improve the services and working condition at the All Saints Police Station.

What a sad day for Antigua when the government will throw a free party but police stations have to close. Things are safer with labour unless you live in All Saints i guess.
There are no poor conditions at this Police Station. As Chief of Staff, Max Hurst, said on Observer Radio some weeks ago, government workers are only asking for renovations because they see other government buildings being upgraded and so are agitating. The government’s maintenance program for its buildings is superb. The Police and other government workers are just asking for their buildings to be renovated from good to great condition. No government buildings are in poor condition. So says Max Hurst.
The Public Work’s need to have a maintenance department with the ministry to maintained all government own buildings. Mr. Weston please allows Mr. Pilgrim and engineers to do their work and stop interfering with your loud mouth around the place. Too much political interference is what causing the country infrastructures and buildings to be in this state right now.
These situations are nothing new as there are no mechanisms put in place for the proper servicing of ANY government department. I wrote a piece about the conditions of the Criminal Investigations Department at the St. John’s Police Station last year after visiting and interviewing a number of senior policemen. I was told at that time that practically all the police precincts are in deplorable conditions. As I said, this is not limited to Police Stations and one only have to look back at the actions of the staff at the Post Office, the Magistrate Court on High Street and more.
