In the wake of the recent attacks on two Canadian visitors to the island on Long Beach, Christ Church and the subsequent death of one of them, police in Barbados have stepped up their patrols in areas frequented by tourists and purchased at least two Segway motorized personal transporters to patrol the new south coast boardwalk in Hastings, Christ Church which area has also seen an uptick in violence against visitors since its recent unofficial opening.  According to police quoted in the Barbados Advocate similar units will also be deployed in other parts of the island.   Attention is also being given to the question of lighting the boardwalk after dark.
