A meticulous two-part security plan is in full effect to protect the athletes, managers and other officials coming for the Grenada Invitational.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Jesmon Prince, officer in charge of operations in the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) and responsible for security at the Invitational, said the arrangements are put in place to cover events and activities outside of the national stadium as well as within. The plans kicked in on Tuesday, with the arrival of some of the athletes.

“Our aim and our intent for this event is really to ensure that they are safe and secure….Within that period of time, whatever experience they get should be one that would be good to promote Grenada, and not negative to our country.

So, we would do everything within our powers to ensure they are safe to participate in the game,” said the Assistant Commissioner of Police.

Security for the world class track and field event is being provided by the RGPF in partnership with private security companies, stadium security, NaDMA, the Ministry of Health and persons who have volunteered their service.

ACP Prince said one procedure that can be expected on April 8 is ticket-checking, and since the event is already sold-out, each patron will be asked to present a valid ticket in order to enter the Stadium.

“We’re going to have what we call a 'soft ticket check' established on the perimeters of the stadia compound. You’ll only be allowed inside if you have a valid ticket, or you have an accreditation that allows you to be there at the time,” Prince said.
He discouraged persons from attempting to use unauthorized means to get into the event, as they will be appropriately dealt with.

“It’s a printed ticket, and people may want to photocopy and give it to other persons, if you are caught with a photocopied ticket that will be an offense and you will be punished by law. We also know that people will be carrying their ticket on their cellular phones…when you are admitted you cannot forward it to someone else.

That is another offense and you will be charged. So, we are warning people against those things,” ACP Prince said.

Commissioner Prince, as one of our top law enforcement managers, I have got a free questions I would like you to address: The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has for decades protected its rogue officers from criminal charges at the expense of law abiding citizens. For example, what has happened to the two officers assigned to the St. David Police Station involved in the beating death of the Grenadian-Canadian-Batholamew? Did your administration allow them to take up refuge in Trinidad, Barbados, Jamaica and even the USA? Another prime example, during the Gairy reign, a member of the RGPF-Bennedict "Killer Dred" shot a youth to death for no reason. Benny was allowed to flee to USA and never faced charges for his crime against the people of Grenada and the state. He later returned and is now living in Grenada. Have you and your ministry ever consider reopening this case and many more? Or do you guys turn a blind eye on cases on the basis of socio-econmics and political affiliations?
