ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Below is a statement released today, February 23, 2018 by Governor Augustus J.U. Jaspert on security of the Territory.

The security of the territory is a critical part of its recovery and is something I take very seriously.

I am in regular contact with the Commissioner of Police on security matters and this week convened a meeting of all of the agencies involved in this area. Together with Cabinet we are taking forward plans to improve security and these will be explained in detail next week.

Re-establishing streetlights around Road Town Police Station is just one part of that and I am grateful for the UK’s support in funding extra electrical teams to support our efforts here. Security is everyone’s responsibility and we must all do our bit to keep the territory safe.

His Excellency the Governor

Augustus Jaspert

    I’m all for this move. True the traffic light in town needs to be fixed, but we have been driving and turning very well there so far and thank goodness, not many if any accidents. We do need the security to stop the madness of shootings and capturing these criminals. Let the governor do what he can to bring our home back to paradise ASAP. Lets not forget we need to do our parts too by giving any information that can move these investigations along to capture all of the dangerous people here that are stealing our peace of mind and safety.
