ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, Friday, March 21, 2014 - GIS: The keys to what was humourously termed a “brand new second hand” vehicle was handed over yesterday to the Western Division of the Royal Grenada Police in an open forum facilitated by Prime Minister and Minister for National Security, Dr.Keith Mitchell.

In a surprise gesture, Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr. Winston James handed over the keys to Superintendent Arthur Renaud in the presence of other rank and file members of the Western Division of the RGPF.

Mr. James congratulated the division on working to improve their image, and explained that the leadership will continue to work toward providing supplies to enable the effective performance of Police Officers everywhere.

The Acting Commissioner echoed the words of Prime Minister Mitchell who stated earlier in the open session that Government “cannot speak about the role of the police and not take steps to ensure that we make our contribution in helping them to perform effectively.”

Mr. James thanked the Prime Minister and Government for their assistance in repairing and maintaining the vehicle to “top shape” for the use of the Division.

Prime Minister Mitchell, who is also the Minister for National Security, was praised by the Commissioner for consistently showing interest in upgrading the RGPF.

According to the Acting Commissioner, under Prime Minister’s stewardship, the RGPF in one year has paid off most creditors, updated much of its equipment, sourced new uniforms, received seven new vehicles that have been distributed to high-need stations, and is working to repair other vehicles with assistance from the government.
