POLICE TO KEEP HIGH PROFILE OVER NEW YEAR CELEBRATION

The V.I. Police Department will locate officers at various locations on the territory’s three islands on New Year’s Eve and Day to "ensure safety and the continuity of service" to residents said Police Commissioner Franz Christian.
The commissioner said police vehicles will pre-position at the following areas: On St. Croix at the La Vallee School and the East End Fire Station. On St. Thomas at the Bordeaux convinient store, Four Corners, Red Hook Dock and the Nadir intersection in Bovoni. On St. John, units will be at Coral Bay near the Sputnik Ball Park.
Christian said that police vehicles on all three islands will engage their dome lights at just after midnight Saturday morning "to ensure high visibility to the public."
"911 in both districts are operational, however, alternate numbers to all precincts can be utilized. Full manpower resources will be used to facilitate this plan," Christian said. "While the department does not anticipate any major problems, this contingency plan simply reassures the continuity of police service to the community."
