Acting Commissioner of Police Mr. Botting said, “I am pleased that the Police Records will be opening from Monday of next week. Due to damages to our IT infrastructure caused by Hurricane Irma we have faced significant challenges in getting the Police Records office up and running. I am aware of the frustration and difficulties that have caused the community and the recovery of the service has remained a priority for us. I am grateful for the patience and the support that community have given us. Although there are limitations to the service we will be able to provide next week, we hope to improve on the time-scales that we can currently work to and further information will be issued next week. The above does not apply for Police Records applied for on Grand Turk. At this time, there’s no new applications or pick-ups on Grand Turk for records, we will update you once this becomes possible.”
