RGPF WANTS CLOSER TIES WITH GRENADIANS IN NYPD
Written by MICHAEL BASCOMBE on September 13, 2017
The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) is hoping that a recent donation of policing equipment by Grenadian officers in the New York City Police Department (NYPD) will be a starting point in forging closer ties with Grenadian law enforcement officers in the Diaspora.
Deputy Commissioner Edvin Martin says the RGPF will be exploring a two-pronged approach with the Grenadian officers of the NYPD.
And vice versa, their officers at different levels can also come to RGPF and see how we do things and maybe even offer advice that can help us in developing our own procedures and practices.
Rank and file officers of the RGPF recently attended a presentation ceremony of protective vests, helmets, and other equipment including traffic enforcement equipment.
Lieutenant Nimrod Ollivierre, who led the group of Grenadian NYPD officers, said that they’re already looking at other areas they could provide further assistance, support and collaboration.
The donation was as a result of fundraising initiatives by the officers in New York following the shooting death of Corporal Daniel Edgar of the RGPF last April.
