Commissioner Dottin & Deputy Prime Minister Mottley Failed In Their Duty To Ensure Our Officers Would Be Paid
Was every senior official who had anything to do with organising Cricket World Cup in Barbados a moron?
The latest revelation in the never-ending saga of the crooks and idiots in charge of giving away our country on a handshake – with no enforceable contracts or monies in trust – is that our Barbados Police haven’t been paid for the 15 and 20 hour days they put in on securing the Cricket World Cup.
With fewer than 300,000 souls, Barbados is only a small city in North America and not much more than a town in Asia, but time and time again our Barbados leadership proves that they don’t even have what it takes to be Mayor or Police Chief of Toledo, Ohio.
It Is Pretty Simple – Leadership Rule #1: Make Sure Your People Get Paid
If you want the police to secure a major event in Toledo, Ohio, the organisers must put up a bond or prepayment secured in trust. If your event is a flop, that’s life but the city venue, the police, ambulance drivers and everyone else working for the city get paid.
Do you think the Mayor or Chief of Police of Toledo, Ohio ever said to their police officers, “Hey, we forgot to make sure you officers would be paid. You’ll have to wait six months or a year” ?
Mia Mottley was supposed to be in charge of security but she didn’t give a damn about having her people paid on time – and Commissioner Dottin didn’t have the courage to insist.
The worst part of it all is that the Police Association saw it coming in January but we Bajans are so used to being kicked around like dogs by our own leaders that we let it happen again.
It is a wonder that the police officers don’t spit on the ground whenever Dottin or Mottley walk past.
Weep for Barbados as you read about it in The Nation News…
1M DUE COPS
by Julie Wilson
IT’S A $1 MILLION DEBT. And the Royal Barbados Police Force wants it paid.
The rank and file of the force is up in arms over non-payment for their duties during the Barbados leg of the Cricket World Cup (CWC) between March and April. Sources told the SUNDAY SUN yesterday that the Police Association was not taking the matter lightly, and made this known during a meeting on June 21 with Police Commissioner Darwin Dottin, Stephen Alleyne and other members of the Local Organising Committee (LOC).
Secretary of the association, Michael Blackman, would not say yesterday how much money was owed, but confirmed there was a meeting with Dottin and the LOC about its non-payment.
He said dissatisfied lawmen drew the situation to the association’s attention, and following discussions with Dottin there was an undertaking to pay the money soon.
Blackman said the money was for police services at Kensington Oval, bomb checks at match venues such as the 3W’s Oval at the Cave Hill Campus, and islandwide routine searches.
He said the issue of timely payment for police duties at CWC came up at the police conference in January and at subsequent meetings.
