With this, the RGPF has established its Operational Management Centre through which all law enforcement responses are coordinated on a national front.
To date, we have issued dozens of emergency passes to persons so qualified, hosted several media and television programmes as well as three virtual media briefings via Zoom, providing information to the general public and answering to their concerns.
Backed up by mobile patrol, we have also instituted island-wide vehicle check points to prevent unauthorized persons from crossing boundary lines.
Effective, today, Wednesday 1st April, 2020 our operations will be enhanced by the use of drones.
The Royal Grenada Police Force thanks the public and the media for the continued support and is encouraging people to continue to provide information on persons who are violating the curfew.
We value your support which is critical to the success of our country in beating COVID 19.
