Plet: ‘No more police bike team in downtown’

yael-plet-2 (1)WILLEMSTAD - Member of Parliament Yael Plet wants to know why the Police bike team in downtown has been terminated. According to the Parliamentarian, the bike team has proven its right of existence. For this reason, he as approached the Minister of Justice for answers.

Plet indicated that he heard this news in the media but the Minister has not officially communicated this to parliament.

“The police bike team has specific tasks that are important for the safety of the people in downtown, including tourist. They also help maintain public order as a quick response unit (QRU),” said the Member of Parliament for MAN.

Plet also stated that he knows the economy is not doing so well now but this team is definitely needed seeing that tourism is on the rise. There are more visitors to the island, especially in the downtown area, and that is why the bike team is important.

Plet wants to know why the team has been terminated and if there are alternatives, especially now that the tourism sector is on the rise.
