During Police Week of Activities 2018, members of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force in collaboration with members of the business community implemented several community outreach projects in different communities with a view of forging a closer working relationship with the general public.
One of the projects that was executed was the renovation of the Community Bath in Redemption Sharpes which was in a state of disrepair.
With the help of members of the business community, the officers attached to the Police Carpenter Shop along with prisoners from Her Majesty’s Prison and other members of the Sharpes community totally repaired the Community Bath.
The roof was repaired with new galvanize sheets, the interior walls of the bath were power-washed, painted and tiled. A double washing sink was constructed on the outside for persons to wash their clothing.
The exterior walls of the bath were adorned with mural paintings to beautify and improve the aesthetic of the area.
On Sunday June 17, 2018, the Commissioner of Police will hand over the refurbished Community Bath back to the community at an official ceremony scheduled to commence at 4:30 pm.
Prior to the official handing over ceremony there will be a football match between a Commissioner of Police 11 versus a Sharpes 11 as the lawmen and the residents of Sharpes battle in friendly rivalry; all in the name of Peace, Cooperation and Partnership.
