Top Brass at the RBPF set for changes.

Nassau, Bahamas –Breaking news from sources in the political directorate in the Ministry of National Security tell us, major changes are underway in the Royal Bahamas Police Force.

You would remember Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham at a Meet The Press Event, told journalists, there was no need to shuffle the top brass at RBPF for he had just done that.

You would also note prior the appointments of Ellison Greenslade and Marvin Dames to the top brass of the Force, Ingraham sent both the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner for training in Canada, but from information passed onto BP the top brass is about to experience a shaking.

We are told come early June Deputy Commissioner of Police, Marvin Dames, is set to take up an appointment in the private section as Director of Security for the Chinese run Baha Mar Resorts on Cable Beach. He shall resign as a peace officer.

Quinn McCartney

For over one year Dames and his family was funded at the expense of the taxpayer to train to assist in combating the skyrocketing crime wave now gripping the country! All his training will now be lost to Papa favourite people, Foreigners!

BP has learnt Assistant Deputy Commissioner, Quinn McCartney, a close relative of the Minister of National Security and known throughout the force as the ‘Wire-Tapper’ shall assume the number two position following Dames departure.

Officers throughout the Force are not welcoming the move.

The high-ranking McCartney was said to have been allegedly pimp slapped by another high-ranking officer for allegedly wiretapping his phone.

Change is coming to the RBPF!

  1. Marvin Dames training and skills will not be going down the drain, he will just be utilizing it in another arena. This is a good move on his behalf and I could see where the country and Bahamar both stand to benefit from this. It is not as if Dames is abandoning his country and planning on using his skills some place else, after taxpayer have paid for him to go off to further his studies and receive additional training in Canada, he will still be here working in the private sector, as an alternative to working for government. Dames still has a lot to offer this country and I am sure he will be taking his acquired training and skills over to Bahamar and using it to train other officers that will be working along with him, thus creating a safe environment for the employees and hotel visitors. Once he is protecting the tourists, he will be doing the Bahamas a great service, because right now as it stands Tourism is still regarded as our number one industry, for that reason their safety should be considered as very important to us.

  2. There was a man that went around “CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS.”
    His main concern was that we needed to “BALANCE THE BUDGET,” may God rest his soul.
    His preaching still rings out close the FNM gathering ground at the Marathon Intersection & the High Way.

    Today I beg the high command of the Police Force to “BALANCE THE OFFICERS.”

    Example: the Political Boundary Commission tries to balance the number of voters per constituency. I feel it is only fair for us to “BALANCE” the number of Police officers per constituency in Nassau.

    If there are 2000 police officers to be divided into 28 constituencies in Nassau, put 71 officers to oversee each constituency, and you then have 23 officers per 24-hour shifts in each area DAY & NIGHT.

    Instead of building toilets on Parks that I have notice over the years is a waste of money in urban areas. Take that toilet money and build small 10’ feet x 10’ feet 24hour REMOTE Police Security Sites (or watch stations like the ones on Prince George Warf).
    Police officer don’t have to be in the “watch stations” every night, but their perceived presence will help. These “Mini Remote stations” can be placed every 400 to 800 yards apart, in the communities, or they can be custom made to move.

    We must then place a TOPBRASS Cops to oversee every constituency (we have enough of them). This system would also make officers more accountable and stop pointing fingers to one officer, the Police Commissioner is not Omnipresent, and what is happening is 50% of the officers are not doing their duties.

    The Police must realize that they have the authority to make a difference. I have proved this to be true.

    Example: one of my sons was acting the fool and two officers picked him up, (I stood hid bail) he was lucky after a year going back and forth in court that his former girl friend drops the charges. He said when the officer put those handcuff on his hands today he can still feel them. I would like to thank the Airport Police Station Officers for doing their job in arresting my son; today that young man had made an about-face in his attitude and actions, in fact he is giving advice to others, truly he is a changed young man.

  3. Yea but we can’t blame Dames for going to sleep with the Chinese because Mr. Ingraham already let the Bahamas and the World know that no bed is as good as the Chinese own to sleep in. Nicely done Mr. Dames for making your exit. Many would complain about the public money being spent on your training in Canada but wouldn’t understand that no amount of money could force you to stay in such a ugly politically motivated, disgusting position of Ass. Commissioner of Police, with your hands tied, no empowerment, Un-equipped and incompetent boss(Mr. Turnquest. By the way Bahamar is the single largest private investment in the Bahamas, you cant blame the investors for going after the brightest and the best Officer to protect their large investment

  4. All i can say is whats going on? Mr. Mccartney is not respected by the rank and file policeman for the simple reason that he is not( apoliceman). In addition, McCartney is well below the mimimum height for a male policemen. How can we take him seriously? But, in the end, when you retire good policeman fro politrical purposes this is what you get. The bottom of the barrel.

    • AND WHO MAY YOU BE TO TALK ABOUT MR.CARTNEY LIKE THAT HE IS THE ONLY POLICE OFFICER IN THE JOB THAT IS CAPABLE TO RUN THE LAB WITH A MASTERS IN SCIENCE AND CHEMISTRY AND HAS THE MANAGING SKILLS SO YOU ARE SO WRONG BUDDY YOU NEED TO FIX THAT ITS NOT ALL THE TIME RULED WITH A IRON FIST AND IF YOU SAY MR.CARTNEY MAY SHORT AND YES WE NO THEY TALKING BUT THE EX-BIG BOSS – WHO WAS ON THE FORCE TRY TO PIMP SLAPP HIM BUT IT DID NOT HAPPEN THATS JUST HOW ROMMAS IS TRAVEL AND LIKE I WAS SAYING HE MAY BE SHORT BUT HE IS A REAL MAN NOT A BRAKE RIST PUNK AND THEM PUNKS IN HIGH PLACE’S

  5. SOME TIME AGO IN THE FORCE THERE WERE FOUR PERSONS BEEN GROOM TO TAKE THE TOP SPOT IN THE FORCE , MARVIN DAMES , QUIN MCCARTY , HULIN HANNA AND THE PRESENT COMM. BASE ON THE PLANS WE NOW SEE ITS IMPLEMENTATION.THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE TOP MAN , AN ALL OF THEM THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE IT , AND SO THIS IS MARVINS OPPORTUNITY TO EXIT MORE POWER TO HIM AND ALL THE BEST, THE RAT RACE CONTINUES, WHO IS THE BETTER MAN BY POLITICS,OR WHO IS THE BETTER MAN TO MANAGE , IF WE GO WITH EXPERICENCE THEN GREENSLADE,QUIN HAS NO EXPOSURE IN THE FIELD , HANNA HAS A LITTLE, WHERE ARE WE HEADED ? POLICE BUSINESS.

  6. All this reeks of political patronage and interference by the dictator(spelt with a small d). One need only to review the timeline of the present Commissioner, Mr.Greenslade, who on at least 2 occasions, have publically made under statements that were undermined by the Prime Minister. The public will recall the incidents of the “marine” and the “barefoot bandit.” These men came to our shores, wreaked havoc in the country, and in their respective cases, were essentially given splas on their wrists and sent on their way, despite eloqutions by our Commissioner that they will,in their respective cases, face ” a littny of charges.” Foreign police officers must have wandered what happened to the promised charges, as this was an extremely embarressment to the Commissioner, and the Bahamian people.There is only ONE Commissioner of Police, only one Director of Immmigration, one Minister of Education: he is the the dictator that runs and make all pertinent decisions in this country… his name is Hubert A Ingraham.

      • they should have made him sign an agreement they would have him pay back most of the monies his training cost us, or require him to stay on for atleast 3 yrs. we got screw bad……while he go sleep with the damn chinese
