Senior police experts from the United Kingdom will conduct a strategic review of the Barbados Police Service.
The disclosure came this week after Prime Minister Mia Mottley, Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Dale Marshall, and UK Minister for the Americas and Caribbean, David Rutley, met to discuss increased British support for Barbados in tackling serious and organised crime and other matters.
A statement from the government said the review of the police service is coming at the request of the Prime Minister.
The UK's International Police Assistance Service will assess the police service's operating model and make recommendations to develop its capability in community policing and fighting violent crime.
The review, which will be submitted following the visit, will contribute to the design of a modern and responsive police service.
