Police talk with students using Mobile Command Unit

Parked between the Washington Archibald High School and Beach Allen Primary School, the Unit became an interesting attraction for the students, who were able to talk with officers and gain insight into how police help communities, and how they can lead a crime-free life. 

Police Public Relations Officer Lyndon David explained that the exercise was done “to give the two schools an assurance that the Royal St. Kitts and Nevis Police Force has them on our agenda”.

“The schools may have various concerns, whether it is people wandering onto their school compound or breaking whatever piece of legislation that they may be breaking. We just want them to know that if they think that the police should be involved…we would be here rather than they having to go down to the station,” the inspector said.

David said the Unit is an important tool in their outreach initiatives around the island, even as it is used in its official capacity.

“The mobile center is a mobile police station one can say… We would be using it to deter crime and to give reassurance,” David said, adding, “We know that there are schools that have many concerns, and we want to give them the reassurance that they are not excluded from our plans.”

The Force’s outreach program will also be used to recruit young persons in communities around the country who might be interested in policing.

“In some instances, we would park the Unit in some location and have our material there to distribute to persons who would want to know more about the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force and how to become a police officer.

“We have given persons that assurance that there is a career in policing, and policing is something that they should consider in their career path,” David explained.

The use of the Mobile Command Unit is one of several new community oriented strategies being pursued by the Police Force.
