Southside Police Station was not closed due to COVID-19.
The Bermuda Police Service wishes to clarify erroneous information recently published, suggesting the Southside Police Station was closed as a result of a police officer being diagnosed with Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
An officer was diagnosed with COVID-19. However, the officer’s last working day with the BPS was on March 11th.
That officer then proceeded on a period of leave.
The officer did not show symptoms and was not diagnosed with COVID-19, until fifteen days after leaving the service.
Resources were shifted at the Southside Police Station and staff from Central Division were brought in.
The facility is not manned on a twenty four hour basis and was sanitised during regular hours of closure between the hours of 8:00pm and 8:00am.
At no time was the South Side Police Station closed as a result of an officer being diagnosed with COVID-19.
All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
