MARCO Alert system launched



Parents and families with young children will now have an added piece of equipment helping to keep their children safe with the launch of the MARCO Alert system.

The Mandatory Action Rescuing Children Operation (MARCO) was officially launched Thursday – nearly seven years since the project’s namesake, Marco Archer, was brutally killed.

According to National Security Minister Marvin Dames, the MARCO Alert system is one of many to be rolled out by the Minnis administration to protect the country’s children.

It is a system, he said, which is just the beginning of a series of initiatives in the pipeline for the country.
