Coastal Security CEO extends magnanimity to Brusubi Police

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Coastal Security and Coastal Enterprise last Friday extended magnanimity to Criminal Investigation Department of Brusubi Police Station with the donation of two new ceiling fans.

In addition, the CEO also hired the services of a technician, who installed the items for use at the facility.

In an interview with The Point, shortly after the gesture, Seedy Sheriff-Ceesay said he visited the station some time ago and after seeing the bad state of ceiling fans at the CID office, he decided to help.

Though the office is not up to standard, he said the office deals with crime and investigation

“The office houses several detectives and is also their interview room where people come in and out. Therefore I thought to myself that without proper ventilation it will be difficult for them to do their job effectively.”

CEO Ceesay, who was a police in United Kingdom, underscored the role of men and women in uniform.

“Our men and women in uniform work in the most terrible condition and I would not forgive myself if I cannot lend a helping hand,” he stated.

He expressed optimism that the newly installed ceiling fans would help them greatly in executing their jobs in a conducive environment.

He thus called on all to support the country’s police department in any little way, adding that people always point fingers at government but each of ‘us need the police because without them we will not be safe in our homes, work places and streets and therefore must also look after them.’

He equally called on the Police High Command to regularly conduct tour of their stations in the country to be au-fait with some of their constraints.

‘The state of our police stations needs to be looked at and their officers provided with decent offices and proper working tools.”
