Police Patrol during Load Shedding

Police are working with Bahamas Power and Light to ensure high crime areas are adequately patrolled during load shedding exercises.

The need for more police patrol came after BPL reluctantly released its load shedding schedule following fears that doing so will lead to a spike in crime in certain communities.

“In these cases, the police clearly understand their responsibility,” Minister of National Security Marvin Dames said.  

“They are working with BPL to ensure that they are able to address any outages, any concerns and to ensure too that they up their resources in areas that they would need to.” 

BPL anticipates load shedding to continue throughout the brutal summer months.

The power giant recently purchased an additional five megawatts rental generator that’s expected here in the capital next week to help with the demand, according to BPL Public Relations Director Quincy Parker.
