The Criminal Investigation Department (C.I.D.) of the Royal St. Christopher & Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF), is fostering relationships with various schools and communities in the Basseterre area, as part of the department’s mandate to increase its community engagement efforts.
The C.I.D. is responsible for investigating all robberies, home invasions, larcenies, fraud and other felonies.
Detectives from the department have been visiting Greenlands, in St. Kitts, to get to know the persons who live in the area and to introduce themselves. The Officers also distribute crime tips and share information with residents on how to better secure their premises.
The team has also included the Taylor’s Village and Bird Rock areas in their outreach plans for the final quarter of the year.
The department is including schools and officers have thus far visited the Basseterre High School, to speak with students about self-discipline earlier this month.
Basseterre High School was the first school to participate in this initiative, but the department has made arrangements with the Washington Archibald High School, the Advanced Vocational and Educational Center (AVEC) and several other primary schools in Basseterre.
