Firearm and ammunition arrest

Freeport, Grand Bahama - Police in Grand Bahama arrest a 31 year old male of Freeport, after he was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition on Thursday 31st August 2017.

Reports are that shortly after 10:00am, officers acting on information and while in the area of Explorers Way, stopped and searched a male and the surrounding areas where they uncovered a .45 Smith and Wesson pistol with a magazine containing (10) live rounds of ammunition. He is expected to be arraigned before the Magistrate Court early next week.

Investigation is continuing.

Opening of the new school year 2017/2018

In keeping with the Commissioner’s Policing Plan for 2017, Grand Bahama and the Northern Bahamas District will conduct school point duties, mobile and cycle patrols, for the official opening of the New School Year at all government and private schools in Grand Bahama, Abaco and Bimini.

This endeavor is to sensitize parents and teachers on school safety and also to remind the motoring public of the need to adhere to the laws of the streets with emphasis on school zones.

Police are appealing to the public to share information on any illegal/suspicious activities in their communities, no matter how small or insignificant (the tip) may seem, members of the public are urged to anonymously contact the police at 919 or crime stoppers at 328-tips (8477) (New Providence) or 1-242-300-8476 (Family Islands)

WEEKLY PREVENTION CRIME TIP - If a crime occurs – report it!

Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.

In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.
