RCIPS services under one roof

The
new Royal Cayman Islands Police Service licensing and records office will open
at 8.30am on Tuesday, 6 April.

From
that date, all RCIPS records and licensing departments will operate from the
former Department Vehicle and Drivers Licensing office at 461 Windjammer Plaza on
Walkers Road.

The
following services will close at their current locations on Thursday, 1 April and
begin operating from the Walkers Road office on6 April:

*The
Professional Standards Unit and the Firearms Licensing Unit will move from
Elizabethan Square.

*The
Criminal Records Office will move from its Elgin Avenue location.

*The
Security Licensing Unit will move from Governors Square.

Twelve
RCIPS staff members will be based at the new Walkers Road site, which will also
be home to the police IT department which will relocate from George Town police
station. This move will free up operational space at the station and allow
plans for a purpose-fit room for video and tape-recording of interviews to
progress, RCIPS officials said.

“I’m
pleased to say that long queues, unwelcoming surroundings and lack of privacy
will soon be things of the past for people who have records or licensing
enquiries,” Police Commissioner David Baines said. “As a result of this amalgamation,
we will be able to increase efficiencies of service, and savings, without
recruiting additional staff, which is extremely important in the current financial
climate.

“This
one-stop-shop approach to the provision of these services will offer a much
more practical working environment for our staff and, critically, the new
location and centralisation of these units will greatly enhance the quality of
service we provide to our customers and communities.”

The
telephone numbers for the office are; Records/Licensing 945-4924 and professional
Standards Unit 946-2094. Those numbers will not be operational until 6 April.
