Police data safe after technical glitch

Police said no data was lost after a system breakdown yesterday.

The 911 emergency service number was knocked out of service when the communications centre at Prospect suffered a power cut.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said this afternoon that “most services” were restored, including the 911 and main 295-0011 numbers.

He added: “On initial inspection there does not appear to be any data loss and full system restoration is anticipated by Monday, May 20th.

“However, technicians will continue to closely monitor the BPS data centre over the coming days to ensure system stability.

“The BPS would like to sincerely thank the technical vendors and our staff for all their assistance — as well as the public, for their patience and co-operation, while the necessary repairs were made.”
