History[edit] The main Police
Police
Force of Barbados
Barbados
was established in 1835.[2] Soon after its founding the Police
Police
Force informally had mounted policemen, however in 1880 an actual mounted division was recognised and known as the Mounted Corps. (later renamed the Mounted Branch in 1933.) In 1882, the Harbour Police
Police
Force was unified with the main land division after it had been established separately in 1867. Roughly 100 years later in the 1980s the Harbour Police
Police
unit was dissolved entirely. The prefix "Royal" was added to the title of the Police
Police
Force in February 1966 due to a visit by the Queen. Since that time, "Royal" has remained as part of the name and identity of the force. In 1981, the RBPF became an full member of the International Criminal Police
Police
Organisation (Interpol).[3] Organisation[edit] The headquarters for the RBPF is in the former Barclays Bank Complex on Lower Roebuck Street, Bridgetown, Saint Michael.[4] The headquarters houses the Commissioner of Police; the Deputy Commissioner of Police; the offices of all assistant commissioners of police; all staff officers of the above commissioners; the secretary to the Commissioner of Police; the Research and Development Department; the Police
Police
Registry; and the Office of Compliance. Ranks[edit]
