Turks and Caicos, March 28, 2017 – Providenciales – “The arrests are a police matter and I do not want to give any comment that may influence the outcome in anyway. I can confirm that persons were arrested and released on bail and that my Government supports a corruption free public service and any activity that would lead to the accomplishment of this state of being.”
Further, that I want to encourage the many honest and hard working men and women under my Ministry to continue to uphold the principles of integrity without fail and will cooperate fully with the RTCPF and Integrity Commission. We are working tirelessly to address all customer service issues in the Department of Border Control and Employment Services. We are undergoing a vigorous restructuring exercise in terms of the quality of services offered and the customer service experience.
We have a customer service department that will receive some additional manpower and we are computerizing and streamlining processes to reduce the wait time for birth certificates, death certificates, work permits, Labour clearances, and other essential documents. This is an ongoing process and the public should see improvement in these services in the very near future.”
