Bermuda not a dangerous place - Deputy Governor

Deputy Governor David Arkley said that while some are concerned about growing violence, he did not feel that Bermuda was a dangerous place.

Addressing the Hamilton Rotary Club today, Mr Arkley said: “Some might say Bermuda has become a dangerous place in recent years.

“I wouldn't say that myself, nor would anyone from a big city.”

Mr Arkley also said that cooperation between Government and Government House has helped yield results in combating violent crime.

“I think six convictions for gun related offences this year shows that this relationship is working,” Mr Arkley said.
