The Royal Cayman Islands Police will meet with George Town residents in two separate events being held over the next week.
RCIPS George Town station commander Angelique Howell said crime and community safety will be the main topics of discussion. The meetings are also a chance for residents to have their say on what they believe should be the top priorities for the police service.
“While overall crime is consistently falling, burglaries are a continuous concern for the RCIPS and the community,” Chief Inspector Howell said. “We hope that all of our neighbourhood watch coordinators will come along and that people who are not yet members of the [watch] scheme will either join a group or consider introducing it into their areas.”
The first meeting is set for Saturday, 10 August starting at 10am in the Family Life Centre in George Town.
The second is scheduled for Tuesday, 13 August at 7.30pm in the park off Martin Drive near Shedden Road in central George Town.
“It’s important for me to meet as many people as possible to share information about what we are doing – and to hear about the issues that impact the lives of those who live and work in George Town the most,” Ms Howell said. “We do not police in isolation; we need and encourage the support of the community.”
Additional meeting dates will be scheduled, police said.
