The Reggae Police

As per Feature Photo #13 [Part 1 of 2], the Negril Police motto, as it reads on the sign in front of the station, is - WE SERVE, WE PROTECT, WE RE-ASSURE.

Now let me personally introduce you to the Reggae Police of Negril, Jamaica. On three separate occasions, stretched over a period of 10 visits to Negril, I encountered their presence on the seven-mile beach. Each time, a perfect representation of lawful authority.

Negril Police - an equal opportunity employer

Decked out in the whitest of white uniforms, which are spic and span; clean; ironed; and topped off with a pit style helmet. Make no mistake about it, you know when they are present on the beach. Their presence is felt, even from afar. Oh, and before I forget, their shoes shined such that they appear mirrored.

They casually walk the beach, in pairs, looking for anything out of the ordinary. Even with the heat of summer, they are calm, cool and collective. When I approached and inquired if I could take their photo, they were more than happy to oblige.

They said, "Yes mon, no problem mon. It be our pleasure."

It was as if they were an extension of the Negril Tourist Department - does it get any better than that?

They look more friendly than the cops on the beach in El Salvador (assult rifles, kevelar vests)

LOL yeah they do look like a friendly bunch don't they ? These guys are more security guards than police though, the "RedStripes" ( police) wouldn't be so cool, when then again, it is Negril.

I think your probably right @dmilliz.
@conradsuperb also said that same statement. I said, that one guy has
handcuffs. Must have a little muscle.

@super-irie, If Police Authorities are friendly then in my opinion we can see effective Point Of Balance in any region. Have a wonderful time ahead brother and stay blessed.

Thank you brother. 🙂😁

They look good....I like the hat especially...beaches in Lagos don't have such patrol policemen....and I think they are very useful

Yes mon.
Is there a lot of tourists in Lagos.
And if yes. Where do the majority
come from?

When I saw the photo I imagined that it was a tour guide, but when I read the title it turned out that the police turned out to be a dress I hardly knew who was very different from my country.
