The Women in Policing Network (WiPN) was introduced on July 18 by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), which was hosted by Her Excellency the Governor, Jane Owen.
A large number of people attended the ceremony, which was hosted in Government House. The Deputy Governor, Hon. Franz Manderson, Chief Officer and Police Commissioner Derek Byrne, Deputy Chief Officer Nancy Barnard, Commandant for the Special Constabulary Arthur McTaggart, Ms. Maria Stanley of the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FDCO), and specially invited guests the family of the late Dr. Linda McField, who was a long-serving member of the RCIPS Special Constabulary, were among those in attendance at the event.
The UK(FCDO) launched WiPN as part of a project to improve female leadership in the British Overseas Territories (BOT). With the help of the FCDO and the Office of the Commissioner of Police (OCP), planning for the RCIPS WiPN Group began in 2022.
Up to the group’s introduction last week, planning was carried out by a core working group.
The Police Welfare Committee’s assistance and dedication to furthering the WiPN’s objectives is acknowledged by the RCIPS WiPN, which would like to express its gratitude.
A staff group that was extensively involved in this launch event worked tirelessly to make sure everything went as planned.
Additionally, I’d want to thank all the visitors who came and helped out with this project. Stay tuned to learn more about WiPN in the near future, and we urge everyone to do so.
