In addition to police powers, the service is responsible for border control, certain civil duties, coordinating search and rescue operations, counter-terrorism, highway patrolling, writ of execution, criminal investigation and prosecution.
The police service dates to the 13th century when the first sheriffs were appointed.
I was Bridget’s personal assistant and sometime slave for 55 years. I need feedback to point me in the right direction.
Groucho Marx once said “a man is only as old as the woman he feels”. Since I spent more time with her than anyone else I knew other Bridget’s: She was my roomate. Thank you all Russ It is with great sadness that I have to announce: Bridget Nancy Margaret O'Flaherty Haggerty, founder, and controller of Irish Culture and Customs (and me), passed away on Sunday June 4th.
The answer is: I'm only allowed to send one newsletter per month.
You may wonder why I didn't send out another newsletter.
The Governor of Svalbard acts as chief of police for Svalbard.
Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,258,317 (as of January 2017).
officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign state and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.
The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom.
By that measurement, up until June 4th, I was about 17 years old. I received a condolence that said “noone could be a stranger to Bridget for very long” I think the ‘long’ was about three minutes. She was 70 years of age but that was just chronology; in her thoughts and everything she did she was still a teenager.
She loved everything and everyone, even those who hurt her. Russ (that's me) will continue to maintain this site and perhaps even put out an occasional newsletter. Welcome to Irish Culture and Customs, a labor of love we began several years ago.
