Police take on smoking

Published:Saturday | July 27, 2013

The police have taken steps to ensure that 'No Smoking' signs are displayed in government buildings across the island.

Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington announced yesterday that commanding officers have been tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that these signs are on display in all government-owned and operated facilities in their divisions.

The announcement by Ellington, which was included in the weekly Force Orders, is in keeping with provisions of the recently imposed ban on smoking in public spaces.

He also attached a copy of the Public Health (Tobacco Control) Regulations 2013 which he urged the men and women under his command to use for guidance.

Ellington directed his commanding officers to organise lectures across their divisions on the provisions of the regulations over the next three months.
