The five-member team of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) who volunteered to assist with the hurricane relief efforts in Bahamas recently returned home. 

The officers were deployed to the Bahamas as part of the regional contingent to assist in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, which ravaged the island and displaced thousands of people.  

They were welcomed home on Tuesday, November 5 by members of the Senior Administration of the RBPF. On Thursday, November 7, they met with Acting Deputy Commissioner Responsible for Administration and Human Resources, Oral Williams who - on behalf of the Commissioner of Police - commended the men for a job well done.

Williams encouraged them to share the knowledge, experience and insights they gained while on the overseas mission with the other members of the Force, particularly in the area of dealing with disaster aftermath.
