Residents learn how to fight crime

| 03/12/2008

(CNS): Two recent crime awareness seminars hosted by the RCIPS and UCCI went down well police said. Inspector Anthony White, of the RCIPS’ Training Department said he was pleased with the response. “Everyone should be informed on how to maximize their quality of life by simply understanding what they can personally do to reduce their levels of fear," White added.

 White, who holds a PhD in Criminal Justice, developed the sessions which were held at the University College of the Cayman Islands and highlighted crime prevention measures that businesses and homeowners can take in securing and protecting their properties. "Attendees at the seminar represented a cross-section of the community. This was important because the seminar contained information that was beneficial to all,” he said.  “We were pleased with the response and have received very position feedback on the sessions.”

Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Businesses and organisations interested in having the presentation delivered to staff or members should contact the Police Training Department 946-2012 or Leigh Smellie at the University College of the Cayman Islands on 526 5045.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
