According to the crime fighting organization, Scotland was the informational link between Cayman Crime Stoppers and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service(RCIPS, giving CCS a voice within the police service while reporting back to the Crime Stoppers board of directors with data and statistics about the results of tips submitted via the programme’s anonymous tips-line, 800 TIPS.

Chairman Stuart Bostock said, “Coordinating activities between the police and Crime Stoppers is a vital component of the programme. Robert’s contribution has been invaluable in building strong ties with the RCIP and we are deeply appreciative of his hard work over the years.”

Scotland said, “This experience has been immensely rewarding for me. I hope the bonds between the Royal Cayman Islands Police and Cayman Crime Stoppers continue to strengthen.” While his recent career move means that he is no longer able to serve his community in the official role of law enforcement coordinator, the CCS board of directors has approved his subsequent nomination to rejoin them in a civilian capacity.

“I am thrilled that I am able to remain a part of this vital community service, which goes from strength to strength”, he said, adding, “I am very much looking forward to continuing the good work of Cayman Crime Stoppers in its mission to keep Cayman safe.”
