    "The Aruba Police"

    We have been coming to Aruba several times a year for the past 7 years. I am finding it very interesting this trip to see a greater presence of police cars and police around in different areas. Seems someone must have issued a wakeup call. On the road behind the Tropicana that goes to Oranjestad the police have been operating a radar speed trap on several days last week. They have also been using them between the airport on the road to St Nicolaas. I understand they have had them for a while, but I have never seen them out as often. Also, new don't drink and drive posters are up. Changes are slowly happening.

    This is a welcome development that I have also noticed. Now, if they would institute regular patrol, some on foot through San Nicolaas, and other areas. that would be VERY impressive.

    One can hope.

    Not a bad idea, after all we want Aruba to stay the safe place we know it to be. One of the reasons we all love Aruba is how safe it is to travel around the island on our own day or night.

    I agree, the more police the better. Aruba is the safest vacation destination that I have ever been to.

    I believe a special thanks should go to Trudy Hassell The Police Commissioner whom I am told has been responsible for working to improve policing on the island. I have had personal dealings with her and can attest that she is very much hands on and active.
