Cops take up garbage beat

| 24/04/2009

(CNS): Stepping outside the usual role of cleaning the streets of crime an officer from the West Bay police station joined forces with volunteers from the Cayman Islands Beautification Committee yesterday morning (Thursday, April 23) to clear garbage and other debris from a house in Beta Close, West Bay, as part of Earth Week activities. Police Constable Sharon Baillie and the volunteers spent around an hour and a half clearing the yard of garbage which has been an eyesore and a hazardto the environment.

 

The residents of the property required assistance to have the land cleared which was littered with household items, garden materials, old tyres, pieces of wood and other debris.  “This kind of accumulation of garbage and litter is a blemish on the community,” said Area Commander, Chief Inspector Angelique Howell. “Littering can have a huge impact on people’s quality of life and we are pleased to work with the Beautification Committee on projects such as this which are of benefit to all.”

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.
