The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] advises the public to avoid visiting police stations to make reports unless absolutely necessary.

A police spokesperson said, “In light of the recent uptick in positive Covid-19 cases, the Bermuda Police Service [BPS] advises the public to avoid visiting police stations to make reports unless absolutely necessary.

“Exceptions include victims of abuse attending a police station to make a report or receive assistance and individuals on bail – who are still required to report to a police station as specified in their bail conditions.

“In all other cases, residents are encouraged to call 211 or use the BPS community reporting portal at https://portal.police.bm – keeping 911 for emergency calls only.

“If you must make an in person report at a police station, we urge you to please observe proper safety practices in keeping with Covid-19 guidelines.

  • “Please, wear a mask.
  • “Please, use the hand sanitiser facility upon entering the station.
  • “Please, practice physical distancing.

“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 physical distance during questioning or recording of information. This is for the good of both the individual[s] requesting assistance and the officer.

“Let’s all work together to ensure each other’s safety and reduce the spread of Covid-19.”

    What are the police actually doing? Operation Vega has been quietly ditched, and they never appear on the roads.
