RCIPS Hosts Crime Prevention Workshop with Rubis Cayman Islands Limited

On Tuesday, 15 August, the RCIPS Community Policing Unit concluded a series of Crime Prevention training workshops with the management and Staff of Rubis Cayman Islands Limited. These workshops took place over the past few weeks and were facilitated by members of the Community Policing department, spearheaded by Sergeant Cornelius Pompey. The main focus of the workshops was on crime prevention through environmental design and robbery awareness and prevention.

Head of the Community Policing Unit and overall commander of the Uniform section of the RCIPS Superintendent Roje Williams supported the initiative.

“I am extremely proud that The RCIPS is able to deliver high-quality crime prevention training, which outlines the strategies that can be employed to reduce crime in commercial and residential communities. We constantly review and adjust our training to keep pace with the changing pattern of criminal behavior,” says Superintendent Williams

The training sessions are the brainchild of Sergeant Pompey, who says the idea is to raise awareness within the business community of the importance of reducing crime.

“Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a crime prevention method used to reduce both crime and the fear of crime. We live in a society where the fear of crime can be more impactful than the actual crime itself, hence, this is a preventative and proactive strategy and not a reactive solution,” says Sergeant Pompey.

Robbery deterrent presenter, Sergeant Christopher Donaldson, said the training not only benefits the participants as employees of a business, but better equips them to prevent crime from a community level.

Rubis Marketing & Retail Sales Executive Giselle Webb, who also attended the training, commended the RCIPS for the effort of sensitizing the Rubis staff on the importance of crime reduction.

“In light of the economic climate and recent business-related crime, I am impressed with the effort that the RCIPS has made to engage the community and business partners in offering training on crime prevention,” she says. “The training provided was relevant, insightful, and informative. I would recommend this training for all business owners. Rubis embraces this symbiotic relationship with the RCIPS to ensure the safety of our staff and customers with efforts to prevent crime in the Cayman Islands.”

The Community Policing Unit will be involved in several Crime Prevention Workshops in the coming weeks.
