Little Cayman police meeting nets interest

Members of the Little Cayman community attended the police meeting on June 15.

Members of the Little Cayman community recently had the chance to meet with their Royal Cayman Islands Police Service area commander.

Inspector Wendy Parchment, area commander for the Sister Islands, held a community meeting on Little Cayman on Wednesday, June 15. Before the community meeting Inspector Parchment also met with the National Trust.

According to the RCIPS, the meeting was well attended, and community members and police discussed how best to move forward on a number of issues.

Concerns raised by the community included the need for more marine enforcement on the island, speeding and its threat to cyclists and pedestrians, and needed repairs to the roads. The community was also concerned with impacts on the environment around the island.

Community members expressed satisfaction with policing on Little Cayman overall. Inspector Parchment remarked that the police could work along with the district officer to address breaches of the Marine Law, and that she would relay their concerns about road conditions to the National Roads Authority.

Since the meeting, she has also requested that radar be equipped in a mobile unit that would enable better law enforcement throughout the island.

A follow-up meeting between the police and the community on Little Cayman is tentatively scheduled before the end of the year.
