Superintendent Robert Scotland has been named as the new officer responsible for Uniform & District Operations for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
With over twenty-four years of service in the RCIPS, Supt. Scotland has served and commanded units within both the Uniformed & District Operations, and Specialist Operations portfolios. Prior to reconfiguration of units within the RCIPS at the beginning of this year, he was responsible for the units which comprised the Specialist Proactive Operations portfolio.
In his new role Supt. Scotland retains responsibility for the maritime and air operations units, the armed response unit, and K9 unit, while assuming responsibility for all other uniformed operations within the RCIPS. Altogether Supt. Scotland oversees 250 officers.
Speaking of his new responsibility, Supt. Scotland said, “I look forward to serving the people of the Cayman Islands in this challenging but rewarding position. It is has always been my objective to do whatever I can to help improve public trust and confidence in the Service and in my new role I will continue to strive to accomplish this.”
The former Superintendent of Uniform & District Operations, Angelique Howell, has taken an eighteen-month leave of absence to complete her law articles at a private law firm.
