History of the Eastern Division

The year 1986 ushered in a new era and many challenges for the Royal Bahamas Police Force, as the Department of Housing provided a mass number of houses for Bahamian citizens who were not able to afford their own home. After such time, and with the influx of new home owners, a proliferation of the amount of reports made to the Central Police Station, through its East Bay Branch, became a daunting task for officers to respond to calls in a timely fashion.
