(PRESS RELEASE) – Officers attached to the City Police Department spent their Sunday sprucing up the Marchand Combined School.

This is the first in a series of planned beautification projects by the department with the objective to reduce crime, promote ownership of the neighborhood among its residents, promote productive partnerships and provide a safe area for youths.

Over 10 officers from the 42 strong department took part in the exercise which involved power washing the walls of the institution, de-bushing the surroundings and clearing the debris for transportation to the Deglos Sanitary Landfill.

“This project is extremely important to us from a community relations perspective,” said Sergeant Yone Camchon.

“We completed this project despite our regular policing duties. We hope to undertake at least one beautification project every month. While we carry the mandate to serve and protect, it is really important that we improve the public perception by showing the community a different side to law enforcement.”

Other institutions and communities will benefit from the project in the coming months.

  1. we need a lot more parks. they need to revamp the one in the castries that are left to vagrants. we also needa lot more beautiful flowering trees of different colours lining certain roadsides with no beach views . if they obstruct beach views dont plant them there please. the roadside with no beach views can be lined up the road side with flambouyant, red and yellow, poui trees, purple jacaranda. also encourage inner city gardens. many cities have gardens in their little pots for those with no yard. its healthy to eat your own.

  2. GOOD JOB!!! KEEP IT UP!!!

  3. Well done guys!
