East End Police Station to Serve as Base of Operations for East End and North Side

The RCIPS has commenced a phased approach towards enhancing policing presence and response time in the districts of North Side and East End. As part of this process, the officers assigned to these districts will be operating out of the East End Police Station. Additionally, the Eastern Districts Traffic & Roads Policing Unit is operating out of the station, which will serve as the base of operations for these districts.

This also forms part of the business continuity plan for North Side since the station was damaged by fire in 2023.

"Conducting operations out of the East End Police Station allows us to increase our police presence in North Side and East End, and provide more efficient service to these communities. The increased presence at the station has already resulted in walk-ins," says Superintendent Richard Barrow, who oversees policing in the Eastern Districts and Sister Islands. "Going forward, the intention is to build to providing full 24-hour coverage at the station."

"This initiative is a direct response to community feedback, where members of the public have expressed their desire to see more officers in their communities," adds Supt. Barrow. "We intend to replicate these activities at the North Side Police Station, once it has been repaired and is again operational."
