Police veteran takes over command of Sister Islands

Inspector Andre Tahal

Longtime police veteran Andre Tahal has taken over as area commander of the Sister Islands.

Inspector Tahal has served on the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service for 20 years. He will be stationed in Cayman Brac, where he previously served as a police officer.

He has also worked for RCIPS as marine commander and inspector for the Uniform Support Group, and as deputy commander for West Bay.

Inspector Tahal, who is originally from Guyana, said returning to Cayman Brac feels like going home.

“This is where I lived for three-and-a-half years after I first came to Cayman in 1994, and is where I first fell in love with the Cayman Islands. The Brac and Little Cayman are very special places to me and I am very proud to be charged with protecting them,” he said in a press statement.

He is encouraging the public to meet with him at the Cayman Brac Police Station. He will also hold community meetings in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, with dates to be announced.

On March 25, Inspector Tahal will be available at the RCIPS booth at the Agriculture Show in Cayman Brac.

Insp. Tahal can be contacted on 948-0331.
