Carifta Games will have 24-hour security
Round the clock security is planned for next month’s Carifta games, when 4,000 spectators and athletes from 25 Caribbean countries will crowd the National Sports Centre (NSC).
A Ministry of Youth, Families and Sports spokesman said: “We are working with GET security, and have reviewed the security plan with them.
“There will be 24 hour security at the NSC and there will be around 30 security guards at the stadium.”
Games organisers and private security are working closely with police. Officers will be available both inside and outside the stadium, with a van on standby inside.
Police and private security have attended Carifta Committee meetings to keep up with security and crowd control issues, the spokesman said.
Special discussions have been held in relation to “VIP personnel who will be travelling to Bermuda”.
Organisers do not have numbers of how many from overseas are coming as spectators, but many of the guest houses and some hotels outside of the games’ official Fairmont Hamilton Princess are said to be filling up.
