Police Implement Precautionary Measures

The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] will be implementing certain precautionary measures to “ensure that they continue to provide a high standard of service to the community whilst at the same time,” ensuring the safety of all BPS staff amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service would like to advise members of the public, that in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be implementing certain precautionary measures in keeping with government guidelines.

“This is to ensure that we continue to provide a high standard of service to the community whilst at the same time, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all BPS staff.

“Please Use 911 for all emergencies.

“We ask that you do not visit police stations to make a report unless the matter is of a serious nature. We urge you instead to call our main line, 295-0011, and you will be forwarded on to the relevant department.

“Hand sanitizer stations will be available at the entrances of all police stations. We ask that you use them upon entering the station.

“We will regularly disinfect doors and countertops at police stations to help avoid contamination.

“If the situation warrants that an officer comes to your residence, we urge you to inform the officer you speak with on the phone, whether:

  • Any occupant has been diagnosed as having Covid 19
  • Any occupant has recently returned from overseas travel
  • Any occupant has displayed symptoms of cold or flu

“Officers responding to calls, will, in the interest of public and personal safety, maintain a safe social distance during questioning or recording of information. This is for the good of both you and the officer.

“Your Bermuda Police Service stands ready to assist in these uncertain times and will maintain the highest standards of policing that you have come to expect from us. We urge you to do your part in helping us to do so, by please following these guidelines.”
