Cop station becomes cinema

| 04/06/2009

(CNS): With the hope of fostering a good relationship between young people in the district and police officers members of the RCIPS in West Bay held another movie night recently for some 65 children. The screening (appropriately) of the recently released movie ‘Mall Cop’ was projected in front of the local police station and according to Area Commander Chief Inspector Angelique Howell everyone enjoyed the show.

 “This was another spectacular evening which saw young people interacting with police officers and really having a good time,” said Howell. She said the kids were well behaved and took care to clean up as the police also provided food and drink.

The ‘movie night’ initiative has been developed to help bring the police and the young people of West Bay closer together and allow them to see that police officers are approachable. It’s hoped that by holding the event at the police station youngsters attending can become comfortable with the police environment in a positive way.

The RCIPS said it would like to thank all those who have partnered with the police, made donations and volunteered their time to make these events possible including community members James Duffy, James George, Christine Volonski, Suzette Ebanks, Diana Brodowska, Calico Jacks and Heroneil Smith from Massive and Isaac Rankine from Business Solutions Technologies Group LTD who assisted greatly with setting up and operating the sound system for the movie. It is hoped that with continued support the event will be held once a month.

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.
