Newly renovated Parham Police Station

Police Commissioner, Atley Rodney, has given thumbs up to the recently renovated, Parham Police Station, which was handed over by the Ministry of Works for use.

 

The men and women of District B, division A, of the Royal Police Force within the Parish of St Peters can now operate from the newly renovated edifice, which will serve Pares, Paynters and Fitches Creek.

 

During his remarks, Commissioner Rodney, says this is a small step to improve the working conditions of not only the Parham Police Station but all stations across Antigua and Barbuda. He adds that the temporary police station will bring relief to the men and women who have over the years, endured some difficult conditions, operating from the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and later the Coolidge Police Station.

 

Rodney elaborated that the Parham Station represents a purposely built and fitted structure that holds all the components that officers will need to carry out their duties efficiently and offer the public a great deal of professionalism.

 

He asked officers to be appreciative of the efforts that has been made to bring comfort to their working environment.

 

The top cop thanks the Ministry of Public Works and officials within the Ministry of Public Safety for delivering on a promise. Rodney further mentioned that it is his hope that other stations such as Bolans, Barbuda and more can be upgraded.

 

He further took the time out to thank the residents for their patience over the years, having to venture out of their district to make a report. That is now a thing of the past.

Reception

Deputy Commissioner of Police Albert Wade who offered welcoming remarks says the temporary facility is a welcome edition and will serve the people of the community well. Wade mentioned that the St Peters parish is well deserving of a permanent edifice befitting of the first capital city established within the twin island state.

Holding cells

 

The building currently have a general report area, rest room for guard, private interview area for the public, two holding cells, senior officer and inspector offices and kitchen. A water tank and generator has been installed to ensure adequate operation at the facility.

  3. With the recent addition of 50 new police officers, Antigua has 400 police officers (not counting the 185 military members). This amounts to a police to citizen ratio of 4 police officers per 100,000 citizens. In comparison, the infamous country of Mexico has a massive police force. With a ratio of around 460 officers per 100,000 people. Wrap you head around that!
    Is Antigua more criminal then Mexico or is our Marxist government preparing to create a police state…. and why?
