Police Officers Honoured For “Selfless” Work
Royanne Forbes, Bahama Journal

One hundred and forty police officers were honoured at the Police Headquarters on East Street for their outstanding contributions to the field of law enforcement and their dedication to the job despite the odds.

Commissioner of Police Paul Farquharson praised the honourees for their “selfless endeavors.”

“Outstanding work has been done and you would note that while the commendations are inclusive of many sections of the uniformed [department] I think predominantly from the list that I have seen a number of the plain clothes officers and the police dog, our friend Caesar, will be receiving an award,” Mr. Farquhason said.

“So we want to take it in the spirit that it is given and we hope that the press and media will highlight Caesar for doing commendable work.”

Police Constable 2250 Calvin Robinson and the K-9 were given a standing ovation for rescuing a 77 year-old resident of Orange Creek, Cat Island after she had been missing for two days last year.

Mr. Farquhason said that even dogs deserve appreciation.

Caesar was given a medal for his assistance in returning the dehydrated senior citizen to her family a day after the search began.

Other officers were also praised for their tireless efforts in breaking certain high profile cases and ridding the streets of unwanted criminal elements.

Detective Constable 2592 Elvis Miller; Detective Inspector Butler; Detective Constable 2399 Wilbur Munroe, were successful in apprehending a 21-year-old resident of Wellington Street, who is believed to be responsible for a number of crimes.

“For your creativity [and] proactive approach in policing I award you my commendation,” Mr. Farquharson said.

He noted that all of the officers honoured were working as part of a team.

“That is what it is all about,” the police commissioner said.

The officers who arrested the culprits believed to be responsible for the Spanish Wells bank robbery last year, were also honoured.

Receiving that award were: Constable 2253 Cornell Brown; Constable 1253 Timothy Bain; Constable 417 Trevor Curtis; Corporal 2226 Julian Newbold; Detective Corporal 9333 Kyle Capron; Detective Corporal 1982 Marion Hanna; Detective Corporal 1477 Dominique McKinney; Detective Corporal 828 Dion Ranger; Detective Corporal 2583 Dario Burrows; Detective Corporal 1132 Frank Hinzey; Sergeant 851 Eugene Strachan; Detective Inspector Clayton Fernander; and Superintendent Osborne Ferguson.

The officers were able to recover the stolen money and rescue the hostage, who was taken, according to police officials.

Several officers were also singled out for their efforts following last year’s hurricanes.

The officer who volunteered to work at the police force’s carpenters shop reportedly worked tirelessly in restoring damaged police buildings after the storms.

The other officers were honoured for a range of accomplishments including the arrests of other wanted criminals and quelling unrest in various communities.
