Cayon Police continue their partnership drive with Key’s Community
ZIZ News…June 5, 2010 – The command of the Cayon Police Station followed through on its commitment to continue meeting with the people of the district it serves when Sergeant Carl Caines and other officers engaged the villagers of Canada Estate and Key’s Village on Monday night (May 31).
Scores of villagers came out to the Key’s Community Centre where they expressed their candid views on crime and other security matters and commended the police for seeking to create a closer partnership with the community.
Under the chairmanship of Mr. Royston Griffin, President of the Canada/Key’s Community Club, the meeting discussed a number of activities that will soon be rolled out to foster community spirit and engender the molding and inspiration of the young.
Sergeant Caines praised the community on its levels of organisation and peace, saying that it was more than two months that there had been a report of any kind emanating out of this area. He advised the villagers that it will take vigilance and determination to preserve this peace.
The Police have agreed to beef up its presence in all the villages of the district including Canada Estate and Key’s by having officers physically present there each week. It is hoped that this will assist in making the communities more familiar with the officers who serve and protect them.
Village business man and educator, Mr. Lloyd Grant commended the event as a truly good idea and described the village turn out and participation as “commendable”.
Grant said, “I am happy to know that the force is linking with the community so that we can blend our plans, proposals and energies. If implements these will improve community as the evening was educational, uplifting and developmental.”
Sergeant Caines and the officers Cayon Police Station embarked on this series of community dialogue sessions in Cayon on May 17 and expects to conduct two other meetings in Ottley’s and in Lodge shortly. At the end of the series, a communiqué will be released outlining Police-Community Partnership Plan of the Cayon District.
