Commissioner Walwyn Applauded on His First Year Initiatives
ZIZ News…Sept 7, 2012 — The High Command, Gazetted Officers, and members of the Rank and file of the Royal St Christopher and Nevis Police Force met at the Police Training School on Wednesday 5 September 2012, to support and applaud Commissioner Walwyn on the success of the initiatives in his first year.
During the meeting, Deputy Commissioner of Police Stafford Liburd and Assistant Commissioner of Police Ian Queeley expressed continued support for the crime fighting initiatives in place.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Liburd spoke of the success of the crime fighting initiatives and the reflection of the measurable difference of the drop in crime in the Federation.
ACP Queeley spoke to the use of technology and training put in place in the last 12 months that have helped to reduce crime by 65 percent from January to July 31, 2012 compared to a 6 percent drop in crime in the same period last year.
The Commissioner said this drop in crime was attributed to the support of the citizens who have renewed their support for the police as it is reflected in the increased calls for service and police/community relationship improvement.
Commissioner Walwyn also thanked the men and women of the police force fortheir support and pledged to continue the fight against crime in the Federation as the community continues to take back the streets from those who seek to destroy our economy and our community. “We are many cultures but one Federation and crime affects us all,” Commissioner Walwyn said.
