Police attached to the new Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, P-STEB, are treating with the anticipated bumper to bumper back to school traffic at different sections of the corporate area this morning.

They’re especially focusing on areas where there are ongoing roadworks by the National Works Agency, NWA.

Head of P-STEB, Senior Superintendent of Police, SSP, Calvin Allen says his team and the members of the NWA toured several roads last evening as they discussed final preparations.
