Little Cayman Police Station
Little Cayman, the smallest island within the Cayman Islands, is located 5 miles northwest of Cayman Brac, and is eleven square miles in size with a resident population of approximately two hundred people. Two police officers are assigned to the island full-time, working from Little Cayman Police Station on Spotts Bay Road. Reinforcements from Cayman Brac or Grand Cayman are sent to Little Cayman when needed. During high season, from December to April, the population on Little Cayman can swell to as many as 500 people, with increased 9-1-1 calls for service during that period.
Common policing concerns on Little Cayman include speeding and traffic offences, illegal drug activity, and the protection of wildlife both on land and in the water. Police officers cooperate closely with Department of Environment to address poaching concerns in particular.
Even though the Sister Islands are located some distance from Grand Cayman, the RCIPS makes efforts to ensure that the concerns of the public on the Sister Islands (Cayman Brac and Little Cayman) are known and prioritized within the larger organization. Community meetings with senior management are organized on a regular basis. In addition, officers from specialist units such as the Joint Marine Unit and Air Operations Unit also regularly visit the Sister Islands to carry out patrols, police operations, or, in the case of the police helicopter, medical evacuations of patients to Grand Cayman for advanced medical care.
“As a new commander, my top priority is to build strong ties between residents and the police, because this relationship is the foundation of our public safety, especially in smaller communities like ours. I urge anyone on Cayman Brac or Little Cayman to reach out to me directly anytime with their ideas, concerns and suggestions.” -- Inspector Kevin Bogle, Area Commander
