After closing for a nine-month renovation project, the West End Police Station celebrated its re-opening with a ceremony and open house on Friday afternoon.
Explaining that protecting the population should always be the first priority of any government, Governor John Duncan said he was pleased to see the station back in working order.
Pointing to the refurbished facilities and the new vehicles that were added to the police’s fleet in September, Mr. Duncan said the government has taken significant strides to improve the territory’s security.
“We have made steady progress,” he said.
Adding he was sure everyone had heard the “disappointing news” that police commissioner designate Robin Smith had withdrawn from the post, the governor said that 20 people from around the world have already expressed interest in the position.
“I am confident that a good successor will be found shortly,” he said.
Other speakers included Premier Dr. Orlando Smith, First District Representative Andrew Fahie, At-Large Representative Archibald Christian, Deputy Governor’s Office Permanent Secretary David Archer, and acting Police Commissioner Alwin James.
