Home schooled students get a taste of policing in George Town

In an effort to reach out to all young people in the community, the RCIPS recently hosted a group of home schooled children who do not normally get the chance to interact with police in the same way children attending established schools do.

PC Gaunett Harvey spent time with the group of eight children who currently receive home tutoring.

The youngsters completed a tour of George Town police station and were introduced to some of the different police departments including Scenes of Crime, K9 and CID.

‘This was a great opportunity to make connections with children who do not come into contact with the police through the regular channels such as the DARE programme,’ said PC Harvey. ‘We got chance to talk about the vital role police officers play in society and the children were allowed time to ask questions about areas that interest them.’

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) is eager to reach all sectors of the community and welcomes any requests for police visits or talks. Residents are encouraged to email [email protected] or contact their neighbourhood officers at their local police station for advice.
