The Police Force, the Fire Brigade, and His Majesty’s Prison will have their nomenclature altered to reflect the modernized functions of these three institutions.

The new laws will identify these institutions as: The Police Service, The Fire and Rescue Service Department, and the Antigua and Barbuda Correction Facility.

They will become the new names by which those reformed institutions are thenceforth known.

These changes are not cosmetic.

That will end with the creation of this new Department.
