Police have faced a lot of pressure on a daily basis and have taken their fair share of criticism. However, they have used the day to engage with the public, reminding them, they too are people.
Police spent the day preparing and serving a hearty breakfast for the public, showing off their skills in the kitchen while cleverly reminding us, that they too are a part of the greater community.
“Well, what I’ll ask the public to do is assist the officers and support and assist the officers often times police officers are looked on as side people but at the end of the day police officers are human as well and perhaps sometimes we fail to understand what that means and when you turn on your television and watch cops and you watch those police officers do that on your one hour T.v. show, what it doesn’t show after that is that officer going home,” said Police Sergeant Roje Williams.
The police have also expressed multiple plans to engage with the public, using sporting events as, cricket and basketball. Football matches can also be expected to be seen between officers and members of the community being the most popular sport on the island.
