The police force has done its part in contributing to the state’s revenue collections in 2023, with over $1 million EC being generated, as reported by Commissioner of Police Atlee Rodney.

Providing a breakdown of the figures, he disclosed that $36,325 was generated from police records, and fingerprint services contributed $92,700, resulting in a total of $455,725 from the Criminal Records Office alone.

Simultaneously, the traffic department contributed $954,575 through earnings from tickets, permits for heavy-duty equipment, and other services.

Early last year, the police initiated a crackdown on unpaid parking tickets, aiming to address the outstanding sum of approximately $600,000 in unpaid traffic tickets.

The government had to implement various measures to recover these funds.
