The Second Floor Of Police Headquarters has been officially opened


Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Public Safety and Labour Honourable Steadroy Benjamin declared the second floor of Police Headquarters open in a brief ceremony held on Tuesday, 27th April 2021.

In what could be described as a historical and long-awaited moment, the second floor of the Police Headquarters building is completed and is ready for use.


The road to this momentous occasion spanned more than twenty years and today officers at the Police Headquarters can enjoy utilizing all floors of the building.

Minister Benjamin in his address spoke of his delight in seeing the eventual completion of this project and praised the efforts of the Ministry of Works.


He thanked the Police Welfare Association (PWA) for bringing to his attention the working conditions of Police Officers and pledged further support to improve these conditions.

The Minister spoke highly of the commitment of officers to fight crime as this could be seen in the overall decrease of serious crimes despite their working conditions.


The Honourable Minister petitioned the Ministry of Works to finish the unfinished stations and committed to providing the necessary resources to make this a reality.


Commissioner of Police Atlee P. Rodney in delivering his welcoming remarks noted that the police organization is celebrating the collective sacrifices of past efforts that brought about these happenings.


He appealed to the officers to utilise the facility wisely and to value its worth. Also, Commissioner Rodney beseeched of the policymakers to make this type of event a regular occurrence on the police force’s Calendar of Events, bearing in mind that there is still work to be done at the Criminal Investigation Department, Bolans, Parham, All Saints and Barbuda Police Stations to mention a few.


Mr Clarence Pilgrim, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works in his delivery stated that he was elated at being part of the upgrade and modernization of the police organization and reiterates his ministry’s commitment to providing exceptional service to the Police Force.


He mentioned that plans for the Parham Police Station are currently being worked on in earnest and that a building has been identified for the relocation of the Bolans Police Station as negotiations continue into its procurement.

  1. Thanks and well done but Room in dey 🤔 some ar we can’t pay rent nuh r we need room fu sleep ah night ar nuh all ar we ar neglect ar we duty an ar dish out covid seed ah night time and what about ar we uniform allowances? Plus you know we need 5 or 6 counselors and psychologist fu de force alone we got issues big man! We need help, mental people ar carry gun in ya! How came the vampire killer win case ‘gainst police ar we want know if he ah de mascot fu de lodge 🤔
    By the way you SAVE? Not save money dey bank nuh! Mek Sure you SAVE, it’s never to late to be saved, well unless you dead first right, we should all get saved just like we getting the vaccine.

    • EVERYBODY need to be “saved”, washed in the blood of the Lamb. Jesus is here, and He’s calling loud and clear…”Come unto Me and I will give you rest.” HE is SALVATION!

  2. Glad to hear that,but can someone who is esthecially not challenged, or the contractor explain to me why the AC units are at the front of the building, facing a main road, like an eyesore?

  3. How is this well done? It took the cops taking action and going public for them to do something. There are several other stations that are relocated because of dilapidated, unhealthy conditions and this man comes out to do photo ops. The headlines should say “finally, the government does something for a change,” especially this guy who does absolutely nothing.
    Tell us when they are going to upgrade the prison and the other police stations, including that disgrace on Newgate street.

  4. One by one we are taking care of things. May have taken some time, but Rome has not been built in one day.

    • For this administration it is. They were not in power donkey years ago. And that during the biggest health and economic crisis ever.

      • @ Sidelines: What crisis? You say,the biggest health and economic crisis ever. I am glad to see you are recognizing this crisis. However,I have read where persons like you and Tenman. Did not recognize that financial crisis in 2009 during the UPP Administration. You are a two headed monster,two faced.

  5. The upper floor of a building is repaired. There is a ceremony to celebrate what again. Picking of the lowest fruits off of the trees. Utter nonsense.
