The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) admits it dropped the ball during an early morning burglary that occurred on Saturday in North Side.
According to a press release, the RCIPS George Town Police Station was called, but the person who answered the phone told the caller that no officers were available and did not log the call in the system.
“This has been a complete failure of the RCIPS to receive, record and respond effectively to a call for assistance. A disciplinary inquiry is ongoing to identify why this failure occurred and to take action to remedy the matter,” according to the press statement.
The release goes on to say “officers were in the North Side area at the time and had stopped, and were dealing with, suspicious individuals, oblivious to the call made by the home owner.”
We’re told Police Commissioner David Baines has since apologised to the victim.
