In highlighting the urgent need for the Police to be insured, Chairman of the Police Welfare Association (PWA) Marilyn Harris points to several unfortunate incidents involving officers.
Among these, she recalls the stabbing of Deputy Commissioner Albert Wade and the killing of Corporal Clifton Common in the line of duty.
She also references the deplorable working conditions at the former Parham Police Station. Videos in circulation showed rain water running in areas where electrical outlets were installed, and the building was riddled with termites.
Now, Harris says the lives of officers have been put at further risk, since the just-renovated station in Parham does not meet the expected standards.
