Brac cops go home to new station

| 27/01/2010

(CNS): Following the severe damage sustained during Hurricane Paloma in November 2008, the Cayman Brac Police Station has finally opened its doors to the public today, Wednesday 27 January, after an extensive refurbishment programme. As a result of the damage to the station, in the aftermath of the hurricane the police moved their Brac operations to a temporary location within the UCCI campus. Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay said that while he was grateful to the college he was happy to be going back to the Creek.

The new look facility now measures 1650 square feet and will accommodate police and administrative staff functions for Cayman Brac. The office has a new suite of police cells and is equipped with hurricane shutters and impact glass.

“While we are extremely grateful to the UCCI for allowing us to set up a temporary police station within their campus, I’m sure I speak on behalf of all of my staff when I say we are glad to be going ‘home’," said CI Kay, area commander on the Brac. “The new facility is fantastic and I’m sure the communities of Cayman Brac will agree it’s a complex which is fit for 21st century policing on the island. We are in the process of organising a formal open day to thank our communities, UCCI, the wider RCIPS family and the portfolio for their support during the renovations and we will publish details of those arrangements in due course.”

However, the senior officer noted that, in the meantime, it was important for the residents and those visiting to know how they can contact the police.

“Our Cayman Brac contact numbers will stay the same – but if you need to come into the police station to speak to an officer or to complete administrative business, please remember to come to the new look police station at Creek and not UCCI,” CI Kay added. Cayman Brac police station can be contacted on 948-0331.

    Wonderful news. Now lets see them publish the daily penalties that the construction company had to pay back to the government for not completing the building in the 8 weeks that the contract stipulated that it should have been completed in. Thank goodness for the FOI we can now get this information.
