Cop’s new beat in paradise

| 18/05/2009

(Manchester Evening News): A top cop who once said Salford was over-run by `feral youths’ is quitting Britain – to take over policing in a Caribbean idyll. David Baines has left his job as assistant chief constable of Cheshire police to become commissioner at the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service. The officer came top of a list of senior police officers from Britain and America – among them North Wales Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom – who coveted the £112,000-a-year, tax-free job. He will be able to indulge his hobby of scuba diving – the crystal clear waters around the islands boast some of the best diving anywhere in the world.

    Those expats rarely mention the algae-encrusted predator tank at Boatwain’s Beach, Mount Trashmore, or the construction of a cruise ship pier over pristine reef.  How dare they bring attention to Cayman’s most obvious treasures.
