After standing empty for over year, the RCIPS custody suits are now finally open for business. The facility currently houses six suspects, all males.
It opened earlier this month, but today (30 March), with the Governor and Commissioner of Police present, the official opening ceremony took place.
Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin was scheduled to make an appearance and do the honours of declaring the building officially open. However, he did not make the event and Home Affairs Chief Officer Eric Bush was tasked with ‘cutting the ribbon’.
The new facility can house a maximum features 12 cells, six on each side, and in each cell up to two persons can be detained, therefore bringing the capacity of the facility to 24 persons at any given time.
