(ZIZ News) — The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is reaching out to former police officers to assist in the fight against crime.
According to Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of National Security, Osmond Petty, it’s part of a wider programme to tap into all available resources to maintain safety and security in the Federation.
“We do not have all of the answers and we are open to any suggestions and assistance from, not only the general public and the present police officers, but all of the retirees,” he said.
Commenting on the Ministry’s efforts to source additional assistance for crime fighting, Petty commended the input provided by consulting agency, Bramshill Police Advisory.
“We want to acknowledge their support, their assistance. We want to say that we value their input as we try to find solutions to the crime situation and any new ideas are important,” he said.
The first meeting with retired police officers was held on Wednesday to discuss how they can contribute.
