Royal Cayman Islands Police Service officers issued nearly five dozen traffic citations last week in Grand Cayman’s eastern districts.
In addition to 58 traffic tickets, police also made 11 arrests in the district during the week of Feb. 21 to Feb. 28 for drugs, drunken driving, a burglary and outstanding warrants, police said.
They also served 31 summons in that week.
New Bodden Town police station commander Frank Owens said traffic enforcement by his officers, particularly on weekends, was being stepped up in the districts. On Sunday, Feb. 28, RCIPS issued 19 citations in one day and made four arrests for drug-related offenses.
“My current focus is on burglary and the illegal and dangerous riding of motorcycles and dirt bikes, which is an obnoxious nuisance affecting the quality of life of residents in the area,” Mr. Owens said. “We intend to send a message that the eastern districts are not a place for weekend drinking and racing.”
