Police forces join Saturday shoppers

Don’t worry grocery shoppers, this
group won’t be asking you for money.

Royal
Cayman Islands Police officers and staff from local security companies will be
manning information booths outside supermarkets around Grand Cayman and the Sister Islands
this Saturday to provide shoppers with crime prevention information and advice.

Tips
on personal safety and how to secure your home from burglars will top the
agenda, according to RCIPS Chief Inspector Angelique Howell.

The
booths will operate from 9.00 a.m. until 3.00 p.m. on Grand Cayman and Cayman
Brac, and between 10.00 a.m. until noon on Little Cayman.

The
roadshow is one of many events planned throughout the Islands
in the coming weeks, police said.

Future
activities include local meetings involving neighbourhood police officers and
one-to-one sessions with condominium owners and managers to discuss lighting
and security in their respective complexes.

Chief
Inspector Howell is the officer in charge of co-ordinating the roadshow.

“The
main purpose of the event is to encourage people to think a bit more about
their own personal safety and how they secure their property against would-be
thieves,” Ms Howell said. “This joint approach to security will mean that our
communities will have access to the best information available.”

 “It’s a great opportunity to talk to officers
and security staff on a one-to-one basis, and pick up all the tips you need to
make you, your family and your home much safer.”

Saturday’s
locations are as follows:

Grand Cayman – Fosters, Hurleys and Kirks
supermarkets.

Cayman
Brac – Kirkconnell supermarket

Little Cayman – Village Square

The
security companies involved are Eagle Eye, National Security, Marksman,
Caribbean Security, Island Electronics and House Smart.
