As Commissioner of Police of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, my main priority was to protect and serve the people of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. I was by constitution the Chief of Police, the Chief Immigration Officer, the Chief of Airport and Sea Port Security, and the Chief Licensing Authority of the Federation. I was Queen Elizabeth II top law enforcement officer in the Federation. I commanded the Federation's 432 sworn police officers and 150 civilian personnel. I was hired as police commissioner because there was an increase in homicides in the Federation. Through training and vision, the police force engaged in proactive law enforcement. Without any new hires, and through proper redeployment of troops, we were able to reduce the homicide rate in my first year by 47%. We were able to establish a highly visible patrol squad that patrolled our high crime areas. Community policing was introduced and town hall meetings were held to learn how best the agency could help restore the community's trust in the police force. The M.A.G.I.C. and hydroponic programs were implemented as part of an initiative to help at risk children. A curfew program and School Resource Officer program was established to help reduce school time violence. Bullet Casting, homicide investigations, and forensic training with the help of the US Department of Justice were initiated. Year round in-service training and continuing education for police officers was implemented and the Private Security Act and the Concealed Weapons Permits Act were rewritten. Overall, crime was significantly reduced in the first two years of my leadership, causing CARICOM and CBSI to use the efforts of crime reduction and control in the Federation to be emulated in the Eastern Caribbean States.
