(CNS): The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) will be holding a series of community meetings later this month in the districts on Grand Cayman and residents are urged to come out and discuss the issues of security and safety impacting their districts with police. The meetings will be hosted by the district commanders and community officers from the various police stations will also be attending. The first meeting will take place in Bodden Town at the civic centre on 27 January at 7pm hosted by Chief Inspector Brad Ebanks.

This will be followed by three meetings on Tuesday evening in North Side, George Town and West Bay, and then in East End on Wednesday. The last meeting for January will be at the South Sound Community Centre on Saturday 31 January.

“The meetings, will be facilitated by the district area commanders to hear the views of community, and issues concerning the policing within their districts,” an RCIPS spokesperson stated.

Although the district commanders will be present along with officers based at the relevant station, it is understood that neither the commissioner of police nor any of his deputies are expected to attend any of the meetings.

Past commissioners regularly attended community meetings but the current commissioner, David Baines, has not faced the public in such open forums for some time.
