Henderson Ltd constructed the police station which costed three million, two hundred and forty-four thousand, one hundred and thirty seven dollars and twelve cents ($3,244,137.12).The Prime Minister said that while the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Forces is the leading law enforcement organization, national security is a civic responsibility which all citizens must share.“The maintenance of law and order is not just the function of the police, this is a function for all Dominicans. It is part of our civic responsibility and this is why I call on all of you to support the police in its effort at maintaining law and order and by extension creating a peaceful safe, secure and just society,” Mr Skerrit said.He added that reports of abuse of children, drug abuse and praedial larceny amplify the need for collaboration between citizens and police to ensure national security.“While the police has its responsibility, maintaining law and order is a societal responsibility and we must all recognize that we have individual and collective responsibilities,” the Prime Minister said.The new station has two buildings. The main building is a two-level structure, with the lower level housing administrative offices, holding cells and magistrate’s court. The upper level will house the male and female living quarters. The second building will serve as the Inspector’s quarters.Meanwhile, Parliamentary representative of the La Plaine Constituency, Petter Saint Jean called for greater emphasis on prevention of crime. “We must make more peaceful choices in our social and other interactions in order to reduce the risk of violence and conflict. I am also appealing to the sense of responsibility so that we may counsel others away from conflict and crime. If crime does occur I am appealing to a sense of responsibility,” Mr Saint Jean stated.Photographs compliments of The Office of the Prime Minister: – / 19 Tweet LocalNews La Plaine Police Station commisioned by: Dominica Vibes News – August 15, 2015 Sharing is caring!center_img 643 Views   no discussions Share Sharelast_img
