Baywatch: Cayman cops – new patrols, new uniforms

They may not have the glamor of the original ‘Baywatch,’ featuring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, but Cayman’s officers make a striking impression on Seven Mile Beach.

Swapping their traditional uniforms for Bermuda shorts, high visibility polo shirts, sun caps and shades, PCs Jonathan Kern, left, and Daniel Devine are warming up to their task of keeping order in Cayman’s busiest tourist spot.

The two officers and others have been regularly patrolling the beach since August amid an increase in reports of crime against tourists.

With high season fast approaching, the officers, newly kitted out in their beach uniforms, will provide a regular presence to clamp down on thefts and drug dealing, and to assist in case of emergencies in the water. – Photo: Taneos ramsay
