Cup Match 2021 Policing Plan

Mon, 2021-07-26

Superintendent Sean Field-Lament – “The Bermuda Police Service is excited to be once again working with our community and partner agencies to ensure a safe and peaceful Cup Match holiday long weekend. We are appealing to the general public to assist us in achieving this goal.

Despite the relatively short notice, Cup Match 2021 marks the second year that a Joint Agency Command Committee has collaborated and developed a robust operational plan for the 118th cricket classic.

As a reminder, the Joint Agency Command Committee members include representatives from St. George’s Cricket Club (SGCC), the Ministry of National Security, Bermuda Police Service (BPS), Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, Royal Bermuda Regiment, Bermuda Hospitals Board, Department of Health (Environmental Health Section), Department of Planning, St. John Ambulance and SAS Protection Services.

As per previous years, all key emergency services and committee members will be at the St. George’s Cricket Club grounds on both days of the event, co-located in the Joint Agency Command Centre (JACC), which will allow for proper risk assessments, collective resourcing and collaborative problem solving to incidents arising.

As it relates to the BPS, we will have a combination of resources on duty consisting of BPS staff, officers, Reserves and members of the Royal Bermuda Regiment. The policing plans will incorporate activities centred at the SGCC and the parks/beaches throughout the island.

SGCC is responsible for the running of the cricket match and have security measures in place, which the BPS will be supporting. There is a new on-line ticket system being used this year. Patrons are reminded that they must possess a pre-purchased (on-line) ticket plus a safe key to gain entry. There will be no ticket sales at the gates – as such, do not show up looking for tickets or entry, without tickets.

In addition, it is important to note that the BPS has once again asked the Minster of Public Works to close Wellington Slip Road to all non-resident vehicular traffic between 9:00am and 9:00pm on both days of Cup Match. This is a public safety measure to ensure free and unfettered access to SGCC by emergency vehicles.

Cricket match parking is limited to designated parking areas. They are as follows:

Two Men Shot & Injured on Court Street: Investigation Underway [Updated]

Mon, 2021-07-26

Around 11:20 last night, Sunday 25th July, police responded to reports of several gunshots fired in the Court Street area Pembroke.

Upon arrival officers were informed that two men had been shot near the Spinning Wheel night club. Both victims were transported via private vehicles to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where at last check, they were receiving treatment for their injuries, the extent of which are unknown at this time.

Court Street, between Elliott and Dundonald Streets, remained cordoned off as the scene was forensically processed.

Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford said, “To think that earlier today there was an expression of real community spirit with this same area set up as a street market with people from not just Pembroke, but other areas as well, visiting to patronise the various vendors and spend quality time with their families. Now we’re dealing with this senseless act of violence.”

Mr. Glasford urged anyone with information on this incident to use one of the many options available to the public for providing information which could assist in the arrest of those responsible for this incident.

You can provide that information by calling 211, the main police number 295-0011, the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739 or, the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477.
