HE Responds to WB RCIPS Petition
Statement by HE the Governor in Relation to Police Leadership in West Bay
The Governor received a petition on 9 September requesting the present police leadership in West Bay be changed. He has now responded by saying that he sees no merit in this. On the contrary, he believes that Area Commander Angelique Howell is doing a good job and that her efforts to tackle crime should be recognised and supported by the community.
The Governor is acutely aware of the level of crime in the Cayman Islands, as illustrated again only yesterday. He would like to reassure the public that the RCIPS, headed by Commissioner of Police David Baines, are doing all they can to prevent crime and bring perpetrators to justice. Their level of success is sometimes dependent upon the level of cooperation from the public. He would therefore stress the importance of the public in West Bay and throughout the country working in partnership with the RCIPS to make the Cayman Islands a safer place.
