Police Commissioner David Baines is set to leave Cayman at the end of May, but he says he has compelling reasons to return.
During the annual Police Awards Gala, Mr. Baines expressed his heartfelt thanks to those who supported him and his officers over the years. To his critics he urged them to see the ‘good’ in the all the work the officers do for the community.
As the night progressed Mr Baines handed out the awards to officers who went above and beyond the call of duty to protect and serve, but the ‘elephant in the room’ was the topic of his pending departure, something he did not shy away from addressing. He told all those in attendance that Cayman had not seen the last of him, or his wife, just yet.
“We will be leaving at the end of May, the island. I have two official reasons to come back. One, I’m being sued by a former Premier and two I’m representing the current Premier suing the former Premier. So you pick the bones out of that,” said Mr. Baines.
