RCIPS at Rotoract Blue
12 members of the Cayman Islands Rotaract Blue club received key personal safety messages from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) during a recent presentation to the group.
Launched in May 2007, Rotaract Blue is one of the newest Rotaract initiatives in the Caribbean and caters to young people aged between 18 and 30. With its motto, ‘committed to making a positive difference,’ in mind, the club requested the presentation from the RCIPS and officers from George Town Neighbourhood Policing were more than happy to oblige.
PC’s Dave Cumberbatch and Teekal Cowan spoke to the group on a range of topics including home safety, safe walking and jogging, vehicle safety, self awareness and self defence.
Assistant Secretary of Rotaract Blue, Ms Stephanie Scott said some key messages about being aware of your surroundings were delivered, which is extremely important. "The information provided by the officers was very informative. I am sure we will be more aware of our surroundings and not take our safety for granted," she said.
PC Cowan, who led the presentation, said: "This was a great opportunity to spread some key personal safety messages. The group was attentive and appreciative of our attendance. It was a pleasure to attend."
The RCIPS is committed to addressing community concerns and the fear of crime, which often heavily outweighs the actual level of crime taking place. Anyone wanting to speak with an officer about personal safety or receive a talk of a similar nature should contact their local Neighbourhood Policing officers via their nearest police station.
