Members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force in Grand Bahama along other government and private agencies on that island distributed food in time for the holidays during a walkabout on Frobisher Drive.
The exercise was led by Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police, Theophilus Cunningham, who said, “this is just our way of giving something back to the communities that we serve.” Cunningham also said, “a unified body cannot fail, where there is unity there will always be success. And as we come together in a form of unity to make other happy and the under privileged to show some form of help, that we are not an agency that’s always locking up people but we are partnershipping with them, we’re building public trust and confidence and this is clearly seen here today.”
Deputy Director of Urban Renewal, Sen. the Hon. Kirkland Russell was also a part of the charitable delegation. He told ZNS News, “these residents in these particular areas, all of them, have concerns relevant to all of these agencies. And so coming here one, we provide an opportunity for the residents to meet the relevant persons and discuss concerns and share concerns and then we have a unified approach to solving the particular problems and issues that these residents may face.”
The is the second time such an exercise has occurred under the leadership of Cunningham. Some of the participating agencies were the Grand Bahama Port Authority, the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, Bahamas Customs and the Department of Social Services.
