Assistant Commissioner of Police Paul Wright explained in today’s paper:
"Based on analysis for the last four years in Bermuda, you have ten individuals who’ve been arrested 30 times or more.
"There are 210 who have ten arrests or more and 1500 have three arrests or more.”
Is there not something rather odd about these statistics? Ie, how do 10 people manage to get arrested more than 30 times or more each in 4 years? That’s nearly once every month and a half! Something about these numbers seems to indicate we should be focusing more on improving the justice system rather than worrying about the effectiveness of policing.
