Bahamas: COP: One officer disciplined for quarantine breach, 85 being monitored

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Over 500 people were being monitored in quarantine as of yesterday by the geofencing program Hubbcat, according to Commissioner of Police Paul Rolle, who said one officer being monitored faced disciplinary action after breaching the self-isolation requirements.

Rolle spoke to the media from the COVID Command Centre at the Cable Beach Police Station where eight reservist officers, known as COVID ambassadors, monitor the various zones of New Providence via Hubbcat.

He said generally there have been no issues with individuals breaching quarantine.

“I had a report of one officer who had breached quarantine and I took disciplinary action,” Rolle said.

“Officers have been compliant as [far] as I’m aware and they are doing their best like I said.”

A total of 85 police officers remain in quarantine after potential exposure to COVID-19.
