The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, in continuing its mandate of community outreach and keeping within the philosophy of Community Policing, the Nevis High Command last week conducted a Meet and Greet in villages outside of Charlestown.
Fostering a strong and positive relationship within the communities it serves, and in which its members live and work, is very important to the success or failure of any organisation; the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is no exception.
Nevis’ Assistant Commissioner of Police, Robert Liburd, in keeping with the mandates of the Force, conducted the Meet and Greet in the communities of Pond Hill and Clay Ghaut. The Meet and Greet team consisted of Assistant Commissioner of Police Robert Liburd, Superintendent Hilroy Brandy, Sergeant Joy Bartlette and members of the Gingerland Police Station, the Task Force, Constable Derell Boon and Constable Lori the police dog.
The community interacted with the officers and shared their concerns about criminal activities within their communities. ACP Liburd informed them of strategies that were in place to continue the 28% reduction of crime experienced in Nevis last month despite the challenges encountered.
ACP Liburd took the opportunity to thank the communities for their continued support to the Nevis Division of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force and encouraged them to continue calling and reporting their tips on criminal activity to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477 or the Commissioner at 662-2145 if they cannot get through to Crime Stoppers. More Meet and Greets are planned for the other communities in Nevis.
