Residents That May Have Outstanding Warrants: Check Before Travel

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) is aware of situations where persons have been arrested on outstanding court matters at L. F. Wade International Airport causing significant disruption to, or even prevention of, their travel plans.

Any persons intending to travel who may be worried about an outstanding warrant against them are advised to attend Hamilton Police Station at least 48 hours before their date of travel at a time between 8am and 9am Monday to Friday to ensure any court matters are properly finalised in a timely fashion.

Warrants are instructions issued by the court to the police to apprehend persons for various reasons – including those who have failed to respond to outstanding ticket summons, reconcile outstanding fines or just failed to attend court – and the BPS advise people to proactively resolve these matters ahead of any travel plans.

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
