Police secure sponsorship again

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Cricket Club is receiving sponsorship from The Security Centre Ltd. for a fourth successive year.

Stuart Bostock, The Security Centre’s chief executive officer, said, “The Security Centre is alert to the pressures of our hardworking policemen and women and our continued sponsorship demonstrates the Security Centre’s commitment to a healthy police service and a safer Cayman Islands.”

Police Commissioner David Baines said, “These partnerships between businesses and the RCIPS are fundamental to the effectiveness of community-based policing.

“A company like The Security Centre is very aware of the daily intense pressure of protecting and meeting the needs of the Caymanian community.”

On hand to receive the sponsorship from Bostock were Baines, the club’s president, Police Inspector Pearson Best and uniformed members of the service and cricket team.

Best outlined the club’s priorities as promoting a healthy lifestyle within the RCIPS and strengthening the camaraderie within the workplace.

Earlier this year, the police team, in partnership with the officers of George Town police station, introduced the first WinBall cricket competition involving all shifts based at the station.

The goal, according to Best, is to have a tournament involving the island’s entire police force.

The police team is well established locally, with more than four decades in leagues. Police team membership is open to youth and non-police officers.

The club is particularly proud of offering international exposure to Cayman’s talented youth players on its overseas tours to England and Barbados.
