Dames Calls For Public Help

The Public can now assist police in their fight against crime with a new efficient app which is set to roll out soon. 

P3 Tips is an app available in the Apple and Play Stores which will enable individuals to report crimes anonymously in record speed. 

Minister of National Security Marvin Dames said that this initiative has been in the working under the current administration for over a year. 

While the app will tremendously help police in their investigations, Mr. Dames also encouraged members of the public to be their brother’s keeper. 

He said, “the two incidents Saturday  and the incident  yesterday  morning – there are people out there who know what happened. Why should the police have to go and work so hard to find them? As Bahamians, don’t we have an obligation to say, ‘listen, the guy right around the corner; they were just talking. They killed that man last night.” 

He added, “Why should the police have to, through an investigative process, have to put in a significant amount of man hours?”

The minister said that he is not complaining,  because  the officers on the force are up to the challenge. 

In fact, he said that the criminals are being arrested and being brought before the courts, but Bahamians should be living up to their obligation.  

Mr. Dames also addressed the recent string of murders in the capital that have set the country in a state of apprehension. 

He said that the police force intends to take a holistic approach to this growing issue through increased police presence on the streets with special attention to “hot spot” areas in an effort to dismantle gang and drug operations.
