Cayman Brac police celebrate new station

Area Commander for the Sister Islands, Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay, with local teenagers

The Cayman Brac police station will open officially on Saturday 20 March with a celebration that begins at 10am.

The public is invited to attend the event and join police staff, elected representatives and others to celebrate the official opening.

The police station, located in Ivory Lane, Creek Road, was severely damaged during hurricane Paloma in November 2008.

In the aftermath of the hurricane, policing operations on the island moved to a temporary location within the UCCI campus.

The new facility measures 1,650 square feet and accommodates police and administrative staff on the island. The office has a new suite of police cells and is equipped with hurricane shutters and impact glass.

“Although the station has now been open for business for a few weeks, it’s now time to formally celebrate the fact that we have this new facility,” said Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay, area commander on Cayman Brac. “The feedback we’ve been getting from people who have come into the station has been very positive, but if you haven’t had a chance to come and look at the ‘new look’ Brac station, then we’d be delighted to see you on Saturday.”

I am glad to hear that we have a new police station. Can you tell me when will we get a new post office or have the old one repaired? I think the people at the Creek are very much in need of a post office. Thanks.
