Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 31, 2016 (RSCNPF): The High Command of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force met in a conference with the Cabinet of Ministers chaired by Prime Minister Dr the Honourable Timothy Harris on Saturday (October 29) to report on recent incidents of violence that have occurred in the Federation and to outline the way forward.
In the meeting, which was attended by other National Security partners, the Commissioner of Police Mr. Ian M. Queeley outlined a Police Service’s plan for the near term to ensure the safety and security of citizens in the Federation.
As a result, the Cabinet conveyed that it had received assurance with regards to the efforts of both the Police Service and the Security Forces in their drive to ensure Citizen Safety.
