BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, OCTOBER 12TH 2011 (CUOPM) – St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas has lauded the Coalition of Support for St. Kitts-Nevis Security Initiatives (CSSKNSI) for its donation of a new patrol vehicle—a 2011 Toyota Fortuner—during a Key Transfer Ceremony.
“Your contribution as the Coalition of Support for St. Kitts-Nevis Security Initiatives (CSSKNSI) is tremendous. Your contribution is not only support in terms of serving a particular need at a particular time, it is going to be long-lasting, it is going to make a significant difference in returning confidence of our own citizens, confidence of our investors, locally and overseas into what we are seeking to do here in St. Kitts and Nevis. Confidence in our citizens of the Police Force, in our Security Forces, confidence in ourselves as citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis that we can rise to the occasion with adequate support from our friends locally and abroad in tackling some of the serious social issues that confront us today,” said Prime Minister Douglas during the ceremony at the Frigate Bay Police Outpost.
“We are very pleased that we are able today to begin to recognise that there is full support of our initiatives, the initiatives of all stakeholders in our fight against crime,” said Prime Minister Douglas, who reiterated the gratitude of the Government and the People of St. Kitts and Nevis for the continued demonstration of confidence.
“Confidence in the government, confidence in the people, confidence in our security forces, confidence in yourself so that we can get together tackle the problem that confront us as we continue to make life better for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis and for investors to come to our land,” said Dr. Douglas in his remarks before the key was presented to Commissioner of Police, Mr. C.G. Walwyn by Mr. LeGrand Elebash, Chief Operating Officer for Christophe Harbour.
“Thank you to the Coalition, and the foreign investors it represents, for stepping up to a need that has been identified,” he said.
Dr. Douglas also expressed thanks to the St. Kitts and Nevis Chamber of Industry and Commerce and other Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO’s), who have had intense dialogue over the past months with the Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Sam Condor, who had responsibility for the Police and Defence Forces.
He also thanked the other members of the Ministerial Task Force – Deputy Prime Minister Condor, Attorney General Hon. Patrice Nisbett and Minister of Public Utilities, Hon. Dr. Earl Asim Martin.
