The gathering involved a general discussion of crime and the elections for the Sector 2 committee for 2018.
Neville Burnett, the Sector 2 CPF chairman, said, “The crime in the sector seems to have dropped, mainly due to the CPF patrollers and the visibility of the Cluster Police”.
He emphasised that there are overall decreases in crime in the sector every year, but housebreakings and theft out of motor vehicles always persist.
Burnett also announced that elections for the Sector 2 committee will take place on 25 January 2018 in the Honeydew Police Station boardroom, at 7pm.
Positions required to be filled are as follows: chairperson, vice-chairperson, secretary, public relations officer and treasurer. “Every effort should be made to fill these positions,” said Burnett.
He concluded by urging all Residents’ Associations to have at least one representative at the meetings and not only to arrive when they experience trouble.
