The Commissioner of Police has consulted with His Excellency the Governor regarding recent public speculation about past sexual assaults that may have taken place within the ranks of the Bermuda Regiment. The Commissioner has agreed that for a variety of reasons, potential victims might have decided not to assist with previous investigations but might be willing to come forward now.

The Bermuda Police Service has noticed a 50% increase since this time last year in the number of reported stolen motorcycles and auxiliary cycles and is seeking the public’s assistance to reverse this apparent trend.
Members of the public are reminded to lock their cycles using the handlebar lock as well as a supplementary lock before leaving them unattended and to report any suspicious persons or activity around parked cycles in their neighbourhoods, especially unknown individuals using trucks.
"Someone has died in a road crash" - A partnership between the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) and East End Telecom.
Like adults, children affected by road death and injury need loving support and information. It is often better to tell children things through honest discussion and involve them in decision making rather than keep them in the dark and leave them excluded in an effort to protect them from the truth.
Thanks to the support of our partner East End Group, the BPS is pleased to announce that they will be able to supply this free book to children bereaved by road crashes.
