Wed, 2018-10-31

An official public unveiling of the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) Tribute Vehicle highlighting cancer awareness took place at 12 noon today (October 31st) in front of City Hall in the City of Hamilton.

At the event brief remarks were provided by Minister of National Security Wayne Caines, Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley, BPS Superintendent Na’imah Astwood, BPS Constable Linnell Williams (who suggested the idea), BPS Constable Nigel Richardson (who spoke to men’s prostate cancer awareness) and CEO of the Bermuda Cancer & Health Centre Mrs. Lynne Woolridge.

The custom paint job and artwork on the tribute vehicle – which features cancer awareness logos as well as an image of BPS Constable Latasha Gibson (who lost her life to cancer last year) – was completed by Noble Automotive, Cedarbridge Academy students and Autobahn Accessories, all of whom graciously provided their services free of charge.

Family and loved ones of Constable Gibson as well as members of several government agencies including the Bermuda Police Service (represented by plice officers, police staff and Reserve police officers), Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, Royal Bermuda Regiment, Customs Department, Department of Corrections, Department of Court Services, Department of Child & Family Services, Department of Public Prosecutions and Attorney General’s Chambers were all on hand this afternoon to show their support for this important initiative.
