The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Awards Dinner was held at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman on Friday, 9 March to recognise the exceptional work of officers in the field, as well as community members who have gone beyond the call of duty in crisis situations.
The awards evening included video interviews, with those recommending the nominees giving examples of why they felt they were deserving of a commendation.
Senior Police Constable Miguel McFarlane was praised for his professionalism and exemplary police skills, and it was noted that he regularly received letters of thanks from people all over the world who had encountered him on their travels to the Cayman Islands. One particular nominator remarked that his picture was probably in more homes around the globe than anyone else’s.
Mr. McFarlane, who has been named RCIPS Officer of the Year for 2011, joined the force in 2000 and was assigned to the George Town port five years ago where he is a familiar face assisting visitors as they navigate the territory’s capital.
