Despite the challenge of having more than 100 police officers quarantined as a precaution for Covid19, the Police Social and Welfare Association (PSWA) is assuring that law and order is being maintained.
PSWA president Gideon Dickson said the association was not worried that the 128 police officers, mostly from the Central Division, are under quarantine.
He said that the quarantine was simply a precautionary measure as the officers have not yet shown any symptoms.
Dickson, speaking with the Newsday, said the Central Division, being one of the larger divisions in the police service, had the “strength” to fill the gaps that the quarantined officers would leave.
He added “The number of people in quarantine has proven a challenge, but we have managed to change rotations and use officers from other sections to fill the gaps. Despite the numbers the public is still being served and the level of crime reduction is still being maintained.”
