Over 200 care packages were distributed across several communities throughout Antigua and Barbuda by members of the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda on Wednesday.
The initiative, which coincides with the 53rd anniversary of police week, saw packages of food items and toiletries being distributed among residents in Division A, B, C, and D; including Barbuda.
Commissioner of Police, Mr. Atlee Rodney highlighted the importance of giving back to the community in a tangible way.
He said, “It is important that we stay connected with the people we serve and continue to show our appreciation for their support over the years”.
Deputy Commissioner Everton Jeffers, who is the chairperson of the police week committee, spearheaded the social program.
He used the opportunity to thank those who made it possible and assured the public of the continued commitment of the police.
On Thursday 9th September, the officers will continue on their humanitarian drive, while paying courtesy visits to several retired police officers.
They will also use the opportunity to present them with similar care packages.
Police week this year is celebrated under the theme, “Working together to achieve stability in times of uncertainty”.
