Commissioner of Police Paul Rolle and members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) gave away care packages to residents in 15 different communities across New Providence yesterday.
“What we have done is we asked each of the divisional commanders to identify at least 20 persons within their community that may be in need, because we want to help,” Rolle said.
“And so, I have, in New Providence, 15 policing divisions. This one that we are at now is what we know as the Quakoo Street or the southern division. We’ve invited them to bring some of the folks out, so we can present some care packages to them.”
The commissioner said the force tries to give back to the community whenever it can.
He said it was particularly important to do it on a large scale at this time because thousands of citizens and residents are experiencing a difficult time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The RBPF also made a donation to Great Commission Ministries (GCM).
The donation included 15 cases of chicken and 10 bales of rice.
GCM President Bishop Walter Hanchell thanked the commissioner.
“This will go a long way in helping us to feed our clients, to feed the homeless, the street people all over this nation,” he said.
