CoP to hold EE/LL Police/Community Impact Meeting
In light of the latest robbery and subsequent death of bar owner Mr Frankie J. Fahie, the Commissioner of Police Michael Matthews hopes this will be the first of many meetings to mobilise the community with the necessary information to act and unite the efforts of both Police and the community in putting pressure on the perpetrators and ultimately bringing them to justice.
He noted that while the recent robbery wave has not been limited to the eastern districts, he chose to begin with this community impacted by the most recent and tragic incident.
“I am hoping that many will come out to attend this meeting, not just those living in the eastern districts, but all those interested individuals, groups, businesses and organisations who want to be part of a Territory-wide response to target this wave of violent crime. It is so important that the members of all our communities understand our response, the part they have to play and be part of the solution rather than sit on the sidelines and read headlines,” the Commissioner said.
The Commissioner emphasised the importance that people know the facts, and form opinions and informed decisions based on those facts in moving forward.
“This is your community - Don’t let others speak for you. There is so much more to be gained from engaging and being part of the solution. It will take all of us putting our heads together and our feet to the ground to preserve the way of life enjoyed here in the Territory so I invite you to come out and meet with me”
The meeting at the Stickett will begin at 6:30 P.M. on Monday.
