Deputy manager of the credit union Seymonde Mulcaire, handed over the items to Police Commissioner Michael Charles at the Central Police Station.

The tanks will be stationed at the Chateaubelair and Barrouallie Police Stations – two of the stations which were affected by the December 24, 2013 trough system.

Briefly addressing the media, Mulcaire said they recognize that the police are very important and so they saw it fit to give back to the stations on the Leeward side that were affected.

“It is a small token, but it will go a long way in ensuring that police officers get to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively,” she said.

Vice president of the credit union, Station Sergeant Trevor “Buju” Bailey explained that the recent trough system affected the police stations in North Leeward, and water had to be taken to police officers there.

“No one knows when a disaster may strike. The police must be in a position where they are relatively comfortable so they can perform their duties and one such way is to ensure they have drinking water at the stations,” Bailey said.

Commissioner Charles, who is also treasurer of the credit union, thanked them for for their kind gesture.

The tanks were sourced from Trinidad and Tobago at a cost of $1,000 each.(KW)
