EAST END, Tortola, VI - Scheduled for an initial 7 P.M. start, the Royal Virgins Islands Police Force's (RVIPF) Hat, Shoe and Bag competition never got going until some minutes to 9 P.M., but for those in attendance it was well worth the wait.

The activity held last evening at Blu Lounge, East End, was one of several planned by the RVIPF in observance of it's 46th year celebration of Police Week. The featured artists were Kirk Adams and Jeremy Vanterpool with heartwarming Vocal and Saxophone performances, Lelia Burke, the Scatliffe Sisters and relatives who did a skit, students of the Francis Lettsome Primary School, among others.

The highlight of the night featured five women who participated in the Hat, Bag and Shoe Competition. All five participated in the preliminary round after which two were eliminated. The judges' choice for the final three certainly did not go down very well with the audience as they thought Ms Florita Lake was well deserving of a place to vie for the coveted prize.

Despite strong opposition, the decision of the judges held through, which at the end of the second round of the competition saw Ms Sharena Joseph walking away as the winner and claiming a trip for two to Puerto Rico or St. Maartin. Second was Detrina Travernier, who won herself a trip for two to Anegada.

Some of the contestants were new recruits who, according to one of the MCs for the night, have had the last of their nice hair styles and decorated nails as they will soon be heading off to Barbados for the rigours of police training.

Police Sergeant Ms Jacqueline V. Tom (Joycelyn Rhymer) was given an award for exemplary commitment in organising the event among other acts that made her exemplary among her peers and co-workers.

Several persons in the audience had the opportuny of winning from a wealthy raffle, including dinners for two and even a trip to Puerto Rico.

And as said by RVIPF's Mr Duncan Williams in a very brief welcoming remark, the objective is to foster a better relationship between the police force and the community.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force kicked off its 46th year celebration of Police Week in a healthy way on Saturday, February 23, 2013 as it partnered with the Rotary Club of Road Town in a Health Walk from Sir Olva Georges Plaza to the Valerie O. Thomas Community Centre and back. Immediately following the walk, officers joined the Rotary Club at their Health and Cultural Expo at the Noel Lloyd Park.

Today Sunday, February 24, 2013 following the Police Week Opening Church Service at Cane Garden Bay Baptist Church, the RVIPF will host the Sylvester/Alleyne Six-a-Side Cricket Tournament as well as the Invitational Soccer Tournament at the Roger Hodge Playing Field in Sea Cows Bay. Action starts at 1:30 P.M.

On Monday, February 25, The RVIPF will host an Invitational Pool Tournament at the Road Town Police Station at 7 P.M. Cash prizes will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Competitors must register at the Road Town Police Station by Friday, February 22, 2013. For more information contact Adrian DaCosta at the Road Town Police Station.
