Renovation of Police Barracks is almost complete

The renovation of one of the existing San Pedro Police barracks by the San Pedro Business Community is almost complete. Currently in its fourth week of construction, the three bedroom barrack building now has new roofing, flooring, doors, windows, exterior and interior walls. The barracks also saw new electrical wiring being placed to ensure the building is more fire resistant. Finishing cosmetic touches are being made before the building is officially presented to the police.


Officer in Charge of the Coastal Executive Unit, Assistant Superintendent Henry Jemmott says he is grateful for the assistance offered towards the alleviation of some of the officer’s deplorable living conditions. “The San Pedro Police barracks has come a long way from what it was at first. Old rotten and poorly constructed buildings are being replaced with the help of the San Pedro Business Community. I couldn’t be happier for the support that has been offered. The officers are finally getting a decent place to rest after a long day’s work,” said Jemmott. Renovations started on Monday, March 16th, and are being headed by Contractor Armando Graniel Jr. Work is expected to be fully completed by next week.


Plans are already underway to renovate another barrack building. Also a new communal bathroom will be constructed. The bathroom will consist of adequate facilities for both males and females, as well as offer privacy to users.
