Lessons from Cup Match will help police and other organisations plan future operations after a Joint Agency Command Centre was used for the first time at the event.

St George’s Cricket Club and representatives from the Government, police, the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, the Royal Bermuda Regiment, Bermuda Hospitals Board, St John Ambulance and SAS Protection Services were among those involved in efforts to make sure that the 117th annual cricket classic was as safe as possible.

Police Superintendent Na’imah Astwood said: “The Bermuda Police Service along with all our sister agencies and key stakeholders cohesively worked together in the Joint Agency Command Centre for the two-day Cup Match holiday.

“The efficiency, teamwork and collaboration between agencies allowed us to deal with incidents promptly and systematically.

“The positive efforts that were demonstrated during the Cup Match holiday were a direct result of the various meetings and practice table top exercises that took place leading up to Cup Match 2019.

“Cup Match was not only successful from the Joint Agency Command Centre team perspective, but for Bermuda on a whole, which experienced a safe and enjoyable Cup Match.

“The BPS wish to thank all of our community partners and members of the public who all contributed to a successful holiday weekend.”
