Odyssey Aviation Nassau (MYNN) earned the #1 spot as best FBO in the Caribbean by Flt Plan’s 2015 Pilots’ Choice Awards survey.Though viewed by some today as a rather unpleasant job, the cleanliness of the Colony remains an important government priority.The Police Act of 1909 officially broadened the Force's duties by stating that, in addition to those previously outlined, they were required to perform "all other duties" by an Act imposed on all peace officers.
Under this Act, their duties included: Given the fact that police officers have historically been asked to perform a vast variety of tasks, it was understood that their authority had to be expanded.These duties included: In the first amendment to the 1840 Act, these duties were a bit more specific in outlining the offence of robbery, which was no doubt a primary concern at the time.Later, in the Police Act of 1860, the investigative function was worded more specifically.By law, police officers in The Bahamas today enjoy the same powers and privileges as those in many other law enforcement entities, including immigration and customs departments.
For example, under the Customs Management Act, members of the Force are invested with al the powers of a custom officer to prevent the smuggling of unaccustomed goods.On January 29, 1870, an Act was passed that gave police officers the same powers as the term used to refer to customs officers who board incoming ships at a harbor.
