Advisory - Con Artists

The Bermuda Police Service is advising all residents, especially senior citizens, to be wary of individuals offering to do jobs around the house and asking for payment in advance or offering to do something for nothing. Ask to see the individual's identification if they are inquiring about doing work around your home and obtain their name and a contact number, so that their intentions can be verified.

Senior citizens are also encouraged to contact Age Concern or the Consumer Affairs Department with any concerns they may have.

Advisory - Illegal Parking

The Bermuda Police Service has also noticed a rise in motorists parking cars illegally throughout the island - in bus lay bys, on sidewalks and on double yellow lines etc. We are advising the motoring public that any vehicles found parked illegally will be ticketed.
