    The meeting was a dismal failure with a very poor turn out ,I think Bermudians are passed the lip service and have given up on any hope of the current leadership getting results, I suppose the current commissioner should be thanked for coming out from under his desk and taking his eyes of his retirement calendar for an hour but were passed the excuses and promises, while he gets all orgasmic when taking about the new license plate cameras that tell his people who’s driving where I think that this will be a dismal failure also and mainly for a few reasons
    Firstly the same system of vehicle recognition has been in place for many many years (RFID) or the blue sticker in all vehicle windows and this has had a ZERO impact or crime or detection, so are we now being told it never worked. Or does he not know about that system.
    Second being that if the police are as good at looking after this system as they have done with the much promoted CCTV system that also never worked then the new one wont be in service very long
    Lastly does the commissioner really believe that someone who gets a gun, goes somewhere with the intent on committing murder or doing serious harm to someone takes their own vehicle?? and you wonder why we are in the state we are!
