Why the delays, and short staff for public service?” We contacted police; Deputy Commissioner Trevor Botting replied to the query with, ” We were aware of some delays for those applying for police records, that is why we have revised the process. We will be monitoring the effect of the changes but I am optimistic that the public will notice an improvement in the service we are providing.”The Police notice informs that it will take two days to get a police record and pick up times will be from 1:30PM to 4:30PM daily.
