The government has stepped in to try to rectify the filthy bathroom situation at the St Johns Police Station.
Public Safety Minister Steadroy Cutie Benjamin told us that a massive clean-up exercise got underway there on Monday.
The clean-up comes on the heels of a recent video highlighting the inhumane conditions of the detention cells at the police station.
The video which went viral on Facebook showed the bathrooms and the floor filled with faeces and other filth.
Benjamin said the Public Works Department and Central Board of Health spearheaded the cleanup activity.
The matter has been addressed. Everything was cleaned up and the mess is no more,” Benjamin said.
Benjamin said the bathrooms will be cleaned every day instead of once a week. In fact, he said the decision has been made into policy.
“The office Sargeant was spoken to and it is going to be a policy that the bathrooms be cleaned on a daily basis to prevent any recurrence,” he added.
The government, according to Benjamin is also making plans to install a Public Upkeep Unit which will oversee the cleanliness of the police stations and other government businesses.
“We are going to change a lot of things. What we saw was crazy, Benjamin lamented.
