(ZIZ News) – Residents of Sandy Point and the surrounding communities will, on Thursday, meet the police high command to express their views and concerns about safety and security.
According the Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Lyndon David, the town hall serves to promote community- police collaboration.
He said, “We are inviting everyone in the Sandy Point area and nearby areas to come on out and participate in this interactive town hall meeting where we will hear your concerns and we will tell you what we are doing in order to make your community safer and we assure that we want to encourage community and police co-operation and collaboration as we put forth our best effort to deal with the whole issue of crime.”
Inspector David encouraged the public to attend the meeting as dialogue will aid in making communities safer for all residents.
“We will have the Commissioner of Police present, also the Assistant Commissioners of Police, ACP Queely and ACP Henderson along with other panelists, so we are asking persons to come hear what these officers have to say as they also listen to what you have to say…in a matter that the community becomes safer and more secure,” Inspector David said.
The meeting, which will begin at 7:30 p.m., fulfils the commitment made by the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force to engage the community as part of its ‘six point plan of action’ to reduce violent crimes in the federation.
