Second Police Contingent Returns from BVI, Third Contingent Deploys,

Last Thursday morning, 26 October, a contingent of 16 Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) officers returned to Cayman, following a three-week deployment to the British Virgin Islands. This was the second deployment of RCIPS officers sent to offer support to the territory in the wake of the destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is happy to be able to offer this support to our sister territory as they work to maintain the law and order that has been restored in the wake of Hurricane Irma, and continue reconstruction on the islands,” said RCIPS Deputy Commissioner Kurt Walton. “We have received nothing but positive feedback from the local police service and members of the community in BVI and are extremely proud of all our officers who eagerly volunteered to be part of these deployments.”

Yesterday afternoon another contingent of 16 officers travelled to the British Virgin Islands, and they too will be spending three weeks in the territory. This three-week deployment will mark the end of the RCIPS’ initial commitment to providing support to the British Virgin Islands. Over the next few weeks the situation in BVI will be reviewed and assessed to determine if any additional deployments will be necessary.

Some of the images from the BVI arrival and departure show officers leaving on the third deployment and greeting those who returned as they came in.
