The police force implements new hotline number and email for official correspondence amidst national lockdown
Following the issuance of the emergency order by Prime Minister Hubert Minnis on Thursday which imposed a mandatory eleven day curfew on the country, the Royal Bahamas Police Force implemented an information hotline number and email for official correspondence purposes.
All businesses, corporations and companies requiring permission to commute the streets of the Bahamas must contact the police information hotline number 311 for approval.
Police officials advise all businesses, corporations, companies and hoteliers that are exempted from the emergency order and whose employees are required to travel the streets during the mandatory curfew, to provide a listing of employees to the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security companies requiring their employees to be out during this period must submit a listing to the same email address.
Police officials say once the employee listing is provided, there will be no need to contact the 311 information hotline.
Officials added that all hotel workers, security guards and other essential workers that are required to be on the streets during the curfew hours must wear uniforms and be in possession of a work identification card.
The public is further advised that the character reference, firearms licensing and chassis-check offices of the Royal Bahamas Police Force are closed.
Individuals being electronically monitored are reminded that in addition to their bail conditions, they are also required to abide by the stipulations of the emergency order.
Police officials say they seek the public’s cooperation with these changes in order to minimize unnecessary confrontation and possible subsequent arrests and inconvenience.
