Police have expressed satisfaction with the feedback received from the general public about the high level of security felt during last Friday’s (December 14) value added tax (VAT) discount day and double salary payday. An assessment of the day’s operation will be done as well to improve on the success of the initiative.
According to a Police press release, “hundreds of shoppers made their rounds from business place to business place in a secure environment.”
“The day closed without major incidents being reported and the Police, assisted by other security agencies, were out in their numbers ensuring the safety and security of patrons and businesses alike. All hands were on deck on Friday with members of the St. Kitts and Nevis Defence Force, the Regional Security Service, The K9 Unit and Traffic Wardens being posted in several areas. Senior ranking Police Officers, such as Assistant Commissioners of Police, Superintendents and Inspectors, were also seen conducting patrols,” the release added.
Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police with responsibility for Operations Adolph Adams disclosed that a similar can be expected for the second VAT discount day on December 20. He also confirmed that there would be a sustained Police presence around the central business district.
