Police help out Paget Primary students
Two Paget Primary School pupils were the lucky recipients of gifts provided by the Bermuda Police Service recently.
Maciah Tucker, six, and Timaii Davis, nine, met Community Policing Division officers at the school as part of the service’s “Give a Child a Gift” initiative. A $150 grocery store voucher was also provided to each child’s family.
Police constable Mervin Homer said: “This is our sixth year. We choose a school in our district and ask the principal and staff to identify the students – we don’t know who they are. Everybody on ‘A’ Watch contributes to the gifts.”
Superintendent Na’imah Astwood noted that while a career in policing is often challenging, the highlights include the opportunity to give back to the community.
She said: “This is a small gift from all of us to you. We hope you enjoy it and recognise that although policing often requires officers to do some hard things, this is but one example of the good things police officers do for our community.”
