Saturday night at the movies with West Bay cops

| 22/07/2010

(CNS): Police officers from the West Bay police station are hoping to open up channels of communication with the community with e family movie night this weekend. The free movie screening will take place on Saturday, 24 July at John A Cumber Primary School and stars at 6pm. Although the cops were keeping the movie under wraps the law enforcement officials are promising a fun packed evening for film buffs of all ages. The movie night initiative, developed by West Bay neighbourhood police in conjunction with local organisations and private companies, has been a great success.

 
In 2009 almost 300 young people took part in a series of six events. Neighbourhood officer, Police Constable Sharon Baillie is urging children, young people and their parents to come along and join in the fun.
“This is so much more than just sitting down to watch a movie – it’s a party night for the youngsters with food and soft drinks,” she said. “Parents are also very welcome to attend the event.”
 
This year the sponsors include Rackham’s, Cayman Imports, Tortuga, James George of BDO, Agave Grill, and others who have contributed to the events.
 
“We always get great support from local companies, organisations and from people within the
community for the events,” Officer Baillie added. “It’s a great opportunity to sit with your friends in a safe environment to watch a movie and to meet other young people from your area. It’s also an opportunity to meet local Neighbourhood officers and get to know all about the police.”
 
Area Commander of West Bay, Acting Chief Inspector Frank Owens, said: “This is a great
initiative and it’s clear that the kids who came along to previous movie nights had a great time.
But it’s not just the youngsters who get the benefit – the West Bay officers love the fact that the
young people are so curious and eager to learn about the police.”
