|Police briefs: Grand Turk police not being reduced|

Police Commissioner Colin Farquhar says a rumour about reducing police presence on Grand Turk is not true.
“I am not certain how the rumour originated that Grand Turk policing is being greatly reduced because it is so far from reality,” the commissioner said in a statement July 2.
“The senior executive of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police are actually strengthening Grand Turk by deploying an inspector and a sergeant on each of the four shifts, which were not there before.
“We are essentially delegating more authority and decision-making to the each shift to ensure accountability and to aid in policing services.
“I am committed to ensuring that Grand Turk has the policing services that it needs. Each of our islands has particular needs, and the RTCI Police will provide the unique policing service that each island requires.”
Two Haitians arrested after sloop seized June 27
Two Haitian nationals are being questioned by police after the discovery of a sloop in Providenciales waters.
The 20-foot vessel was found anchored off Five Cays beach in the early hours of June 27.
Officers carried out a detailed search of the area but no one was found.
However, further enquiries revealed that the boat came from Haiti with up to 20 persons on board.
Police later arrested a man and a woman who were found hiding in bushes off South Dock Road. Both are believed to have been aboard the vessel when it arrived on Provo.
