EAST END, Tortola, VI- Over the weekend, Police closed two bars for the night and shut down another two until they were able to produce licences to operate in the East End area.

In this Police operation, at least two of the bars had exceeded the opening hours for bars under the law, while another two could not produce licences to operate and therefore were told to shut their doors until a permit to operate was produced.

Superintendent of Operation St. Clair Amory, who led a team of officers on Saturday evening, explained that these operations are intended to curtail illegal activity in and around these establishments and to identify those who are operating illegally.

“These Police operations are important to ensure that bars are following the law in adhering to the closing hours which addresses community concerns regarding excessive noise as prescribed by law as well as having the up-to-date licenses to operate. We will be conducting these operations around the Territory.

Last week, Police also joined with Immigration and Customs officers in conducting immigration checks on individuals in Road Town, East End and Purcell Estate in an effort to reduce the number of undocumented workers living and working in the Territory. A number of persons were asked to verify their work permit status.
