On Sunday 18 April, Community Policing Officers (CPO) gathered at the Summerfield Place apartment complex in George Town to assist the residents in Launching their Neighbourhood Watch Program.
PC Donville Myers who is the CPO for the Courts Road area of George Town spoke with the residents about the importance of having the Neighbourhood Watch Program, while Police Sergeant Cornelius Pompey delivered a crime prevention presentation on “Community Safety” to the persons in attendance. Superintendent Brad Ebanks, in charge of Uniform and Specialist Operations, was also in attendance and spoke with the residents briefly, congratulating them on a successful Neighbourhood Watch launch.
PC Myers presented the residents with a Neighbourhood Watch sign that will be strategically placed in the complex to inform others that Summerfield is a Neighbourhood Watch Community. PC Myers was supported by a host of CPOs as well as the Community Safety Officer (CSO) for that area, Ms. Abby-Gayle Phuran.
The Community Policing Unit encourages anyone interested in having a Neighbourhood Watch Program in their community to contact their CPO or their CSO. To find out who your CPO or CSO are visit the Community Policing page here.
