The Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda continues to use the activities of
the annual Police Week to forge stronger bonds with members of the society.
As part of this initiative, members of the force continue to celebrate their 55th
anniversary of police week this year, with many officials going into the various
communities to distribute care packages to residents.
“This community initiative which started several decades ago, has significantly
improved over the years. A large number of packages were distributed to show
appreciation to those who served and worked closely with the police, while making
a meaningful contribution to the nation. The packages consist of toiletries and a
wide variety of non-perishable items. Many of the items were donated by local
businesses,” a release from STRATCOM stated.
Commissioner of Police, Atlee Rodney has expressed appreciation to the corporate
citizenry and business community as well as those faithful individuals who have
been supporting police week to make it successful each year.
Police officers who took part in the drive said it was quite a heartwarming
experience, while at the same time adding true value to this year's theme: "With
Pride and Dignity, We are Working Together With Our Community".
Assistant Superintendent Rodney Ellis, along with Inspectors Natalie Baltimore,
Gwendolyn Joseph-Gomes, Francis Dinard, and several others were took part in
the community project.
The 2023 police week celebrations will conclude on Sunday, September 17, with a
family fun day and sporting activities at Ffryes Beach.
