Basseterre, St. Kitts, January 31, 2019 (RSCNPF): Officers from the Tabernacle and Stapleton Police Stations interacted with members of their respective communities at recently held social gatherings.
Both events are organised annually and are meant to bring the Police closer to the residents of the communities they serve. The socials took place on the grounds of the Stations. Residents were treated to lots of food, drinks, music and dominos, and many were seen dancing and having a good time.
At the Tabernacle Police Station, the Police teamed up with members of the Fire and Rescue Service with whom they share the building. The activity began in the afternoon with a fun day for children. Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Dr. Timothy Harris, was on hand to distribute party bags to approximately one hundred (100) children. The Officers also ensured that there was a bouncing castle and lots of snacks to keep the children entertained.
A resident from Tabernacle explained that she first began going to the socials some years ago when she was invited by the late Sergeant Dwight Davis. She has fond memories of Sergeant Davis as a Police Officer and has been participating in the activity ever since.
A Stapleton resident stated that he attends the social every year and he appreciated the Police's efforts to keep the area safe. He added that he made donations to his local Police whenever he could and in any way that he could. The resident added that he always enjoyed himself at the events and that this year was no different.
Police Officers in Stapleton and Tabernacle conducted a number of walk-through exercises in the area inviting residents to the event and soliciting contributions; the community responded favourably. Also present at the social gatherings were the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of National Security, Osmond Petty, members of the Police High Command, Officers from other departments and stations, as well as civilians who work with the Police.
