While hundreds of people were camping and partying on Cayman’s beaches, it was a quiet Easter weekend, according to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
George Town police reported no major incidents, only a few loud music complaints, and West Bay had only one noise complaint throughout the weekend.
“West Bay officers wish to thank campers for their assistance in making this a safe and enjoyable weekend for all involved,” RCIPS spokeswoman Jacqueline Carpenter said.
In the eastern districts, there were also some noise complaints, one trespassing incident and one theft, but no “major issues associated with the Easter weekend,” Ms. Carpenter said.
The Marine Unit also reported no incidents of note on the water, while on the roads, there were only two DUIs.
“All in all, I think we can say that we are grateful to see that people appear to have taken precautions to ensure their safety and those around them while enjoying Easter weekend activities,” Ms. Carpenter said.
