Bahamas Policeman character jug modeled by William K. Harper and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in a 1992 special edition of 1,000 commissioned by The Island Galleria International Bazaar of Freeport, Bahamas. This policemen, smartly dressed in his crisp white uniform, is responsible for directing traffic and assuring the personal security of the citizens of the Bahamas. The Royal Bahamas Police Force is entrusted with maintaining law and order throughout the Bahamas. This force evolved from the traditional British Constable system and is a small paramilitary force whose training is performed at the Bahamas Police Academy in Oakes Field, Nassau. Since 1922 the pith helmet is no longer used by the Bahamas policeman, it was until then the traditional headpiece of this local constable, remarkable for its brightly colored hatband. This jug was based on a photograph of the local Bahamas policeman whose beat included The Island Galleria, a china and glass shop owned by Mr. Paul Lane, the gentleman who commissioned the jug. The tassel of the policeman's pith helmet forms the handle of the jug.
