    Is the BVI police force making all these arrests? Or is it the officers from the Caymans, etc who are actually patrolling and making these arrests? Where ARE the local police anyway? I haven’t seen any of our government paid policemen in a while. I just keep seeing the guys in blue or black. Happy to at least see them, especially the ones with the big guns.

      The local police are dressed as same, in black, unless you know them personally you won’t be able to identify them, so regardless who is making arrest say thank god police are doing what you ppl been crying out for. Everything is a problem. Applaud them for a job well done.
