Bikers against crime

| 22/05/2009

(CNS): Cayman’s bikers turned out in force to show their support for the fight against crime in an islandwide cruise from Boatswain’s Beach to Kaibo. Dozens of avid bikers took part in the first ‘Ride Against Crime’ on Sunday, 17 May, organized by Cayman Crime Stoppers’ in partnership with the Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association. The riders were accompanied by police escort from West Bay through Sound Sound to Savannah, where they took an oragnised stop to talk with members of the public.

The ride then made it’s way via East End to Kaibo at Cayman Kai, where the public was afforded another opportunity to view the bikes and learn about the Crime Stoppers programme.

Stuart Bostock, Chairman of Cayman Crime Stoppers, was delighted with the turn out. He said, “I want to thank everyone who took part in the ride for their support. I would also like to thank Keith Keller of the Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association for partnering with us to promote Crime Stoppers. The day was a huge success and all the riders and spectators had a great time. Most importantly we attracted a lot in interest in Crime Stoppers and even gained a few new members.” Mr. Bostock added, “I’d also like to thank members of the public and road users for their patience – the day went off without a hitch.”

Mr. Bostock said, “As the ride was such a success we will be doing it again next year when we hope to get even more riders and supporters for the day.”

Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of crime. It exists to promote the Crime Stoppers telephone tips line, 800 TIPS (no ‘1’ before the 800), which anybody can call to report a crime in complete anonymity. Calls are answered by a call center in Miami so callers will never be recognised and nor will they ever be asked to reveal their identity or give personal details. Callers can receive a reward of up to $1,000 should the information they give lead to the successful resolution of a case.
