Defence Headquarters, (RBDF): It has been brought to the Ministry of National Security’s attention that an incursion response drill which simulated the use of its infantry equipment/vehicle and armed personnel has raised unnecessary alarm and concerns from the general public. However, the public is advised that the simulated use of its armored vehicle and armed personnel was not a defensive posture taken against any particular actor, but an exercise to ensure the alertness and responsiveness to potential threat(s) posed against the facility which houses the Honorable Minister of National Security and the Commander Defence Force.

The Force continues to participate in training opportunities and execute drills that allow for effective responses that preserve the life and safety of its people during diverse and varied operations. In keeping with its strategic mandate of being prepared to serve and respond to security threats that may arise, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force may periodically simulate a specific threat occurring in The Bahamas and evaluate the effectiveness of the response to that threat by pertinent agencies.

Additionally, exercises of this nature are expected to identify the tasks, authorities, key interagency interactions, as well the command and control architecture. It allows for forward-planning and strategic missions of the military organization as it prepares itself to respond to security threats, which may adversely impact the sovereignty of The Bahamas.
