Tomorrow August 5 will mark the observance of the first Family Friday.

According to a bulletin issued by the RVIPF, “this Friday and every first Friday of the month, families are encouraged to reset values and restore hearts for the sake of the child, the young man or woman, and the elders within the community.”

Persons are encouraged to host and attend events in the curtilages of their homes, or select restaurants which will commemorate the day by offering significant discounts to dining parties comprising of 7 or more persons. Some of these participating restaurants are Village Cay Marina, Sebastians by the Sea, Leverick Bay, and the Anegada Beach Hotel.

Discount cards can be collected at the front of the Road Town Police Station or at the Police Headquarters.

Members of the public are also asked to take photos of Friday’s family activities and post them with the hashtag #FamilyFridaysBVI. Persons who participate are eligible to claim family prizes.

The initiative is a collaboration between the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and the BVI Chamber of Commerce and Hotel Association (BVICCHA). It is intended to facilitate the restoration of family ties, foster meaningful connections between relatives, and ultimately build stronger communities throughout the Virgin Islands.

This is a good idea but the initiator (rvipf)does not live and will not live according to the family' s principles. It is like a preacher who knows all the scriptures in the holy bible but still act contrary to its teaching. Transformation should start within. Learn to have considerations for the psychological well-being of the officers and their families . Treat the officers better ,make them feel that they are part of the rvipf family so they can go and make a difference in the community. Stop the like and dislike culture .

Focus On Security Please!
I can't understand for the life of me why RVIPF is spearheading this. Is this not the job of the Ministry of Health and Social Development? Why doesn't RVIPF focus on cleaning up the Force and combatting crime. Please stop the publicity stunts Commissioner Collins. You are not forgiven for the video. Governor Rankin please quickly find a new Commissioner who understands policing and what he or she should actually be focused on.
