No 41 Scheme play field restored
While their motto is to serve and protect, the police over the years and more so
lately have been going outside of their mandate to change their image that have been tarnished in the recent past and become more community aware and friendly.
The Police in B division, especially those attached to the Central Police Station and the ‘B’ division headquarters, have been leading the way in terms of preserving the image of and presenting the new image of the force.
Over the past 12 months the police have taken a series of initiatives, which started under former Commander of the division, Assistant Commissioner Brian Joseph and now Commander and Assistant Commissioner Christopher Griffith. One such initiative is the forces’ drive to being more interactive with members of the community, not withstanding taking care of the welfare of those within its employ.
Sentiments that were echoed by point man, Station Sergeant Marlon O’Donaghue, attached to the Central Police Station. According to Sergeant O’Donaghue the programmes are all part of the forces enhancement project in addition to the strengthening the police and community relationships.
So far for the year a number of initiatives have been successfully undertaken, including the reformation of police youth clubs and community groups and widening the Cops and Faith network.
While community walkabout, visits and adoption of depressed communities were also undertaken.
Recently the police undertook a community outreach project which was the enhancement of the NO41 Scheme Playfield. After making regular visits to the area and assessing the needs of the community the force lead by the Community relations officer of B Division, Cadet Officer Keith Williams and Sergeant O’Donaghue, revisited the area and cleaned up the playfield which was in a bad state for a number of years.
The exercise according to Sergeant O’Donaghue was well received and will be continued. He expressed his appreciation and gratitude to those that assisted. (Samuel Whyte)
