Security firm backs cops’ cricket club

| 24/06/2014

(CNS): The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Cricket Club will be able to keep up its batting average thanks to the support of a local security firm that has renewed its all important financial support. The Club’s President, Inspector Pearson Best, said the police CC promotes a healthy lifestyle within the RCIPS and strengthens camaraderie. Earlier this year, RCIP-CC in partnership with the officers of George Town Police Station successfully introduced the first ‘WinBall’ cricket competition involving all shifts based at the GTPS. “The goal “, according to Best, is to have a tournament involving the entire police service.

A stalwart within local cricket, the RCIPS CC has been on the increase for four decades and the club is open to young people and civillians. Best said the Club is particularly proud of offering international exposure to Cayman’s talented youth players on its overseas tours to England and Barbados.

However it can’t do any of it without cash and the Security Centre Ltd renewed its sponsorship of the Club for a fourth successive year.

Stuart Bostock, the firm’s CEO, said it was “alert to the pressures of our hardworking policemen and women and our continued sponsorship demonstrates the Security Centre Ltd.’s commitment to a healthy police service and a safer Cayman Islands.”

Thanking the firm, the police commissioner David Baines said, “These partnerships between businesses and the RCIPS are fundamental to the effectiveness of community- based policing.  A company like the Security Centre Ltd is very aware of the daily intense pressure of protecting and meeting the needs of the Caymanian community.”
