George Town Police Station

The George Town Police Station is the RCIPS’ main police station, located in the centre of the capital next to the Government Building. It houses the majority of the Service’s uniform police and investigative units, including all uniform management offices, CID, Crime Scene Investigation, Exhibits, Community Policing, Crime Desk, K-9 and Firearms Units.  It is a hub of daily police activity and is the location where the bulk of the Service’s briefings, operational planning and investigative work take place. 

Over forty uniform police officers perform frontline duties in George Town, providing a 24-hour policing response in the islands’ most populous district across five shifts.  This frontline response is bolstered by firearms officers, who are also attached to shifts, and community police officers who operate within three defined beats within the district.

Over the past two years uniform management has strived to map policing activities more closely to the needs of the district and increase police visibility. With up to 20,000 cruise ship arrivals on a given day at the George Town waterfront during peak season, high-value banking and retail activity throughout the district, several government as well as private schools, late-night entertainment establishments, and both higher-income and lower-income residential areas, George Town requires policing that is visible, varied and simultaneous.  Uniform shift officers, armed officers and community officers are deployed to areas around the district in patterns and operations that proactively manage policing around the ebb and flow of George Town activity, from officers permanently stationed at the waterfront directing traffic and tourists near the port terminals, to bicycle patrols of compact residential areas, to late-night/early morning patrols of liquor-licensed premises.  All of these efforts have increased police visibility in the capital with the intention of strengthening public confidence.

Given the number of events which take place in George Town, uniform management has also established a Chief of Staff Office to manage officer deployment and facilitation of public events.  Public ceremonies, charity runs, festivals and carnivals are a main feature of public life in the capital and require police facilitation to ensure traffic rules and public safety are observed.  Police also directly participate in formal ceremonies and parades that regularly occur throughout the year, the organization of which is also directed out of the George Town Police Station by the Chief of Staff Office.
