RBPF the police service of The Bahamas
The Royal Bahamas Police Force is the national police service of The Bahamas. Established in 1840, the RBPF offers policing services
in all the islands of The Bahamas. The RBPF is currently at a strength of 3,000 trained professional men and women who serve the Bahamian
people each day in their self-less effort to maintain the peace in our communities. Police recruits enter the Police College in Nassau or the Freeport, Grand Bahama campus for an intense six month training regimen after which upon successful completion are
awarded the rank of "constable" and are dispersed throughout the archipelago to begin their careers. Further training in
specialised areas continues after graduation as officers are kept current in policing tactics, skills and philosophy.
The officers assigned to Bimini are part of this highly respected national police service.
