Introducing the (one) of the New community officers Miss J.J. Jones
In the interest of better serving the community of Sint Maarten after a considerable length of time the police force of Sint Maarten has expanded their group of community officers with 4 new community police officers.
During the coming weeks and months these new police officers will be introduced to the community of Sint Marten and the neighborhoods they are assigned to.
Throughout this coming period these police officers will be trained for this important function.
These new district officers have each selected several projects for their phase of introduction which should have a positive effect on their neighborhood.
One newly appointed district officer of district 4 (cay Hill Bel-Air and Fort William and surroundings) namely Officer J.J.Jones has taken as her initial project the illegal use of the public road as a storage for abandoned vehicles.
Placing and abandoning vehicles along narrow roads and side streets interferes with free movement of traffic while also making it hazardous for emergency vehicles to access certain parts of the community.
Utility companies have also pointed out a significant inconvenience to works due to improperly parked and/or abandoned vehicles on public roads.
Parking or leaving abandoned vehicles on the public road is against the law and can result in a fine and the possibility of the vehicle being towed away at the owner’s expense.
Vehicle owners must also consider that these vehicle left randomly by the roadside provides a negative image of the neighborhood.
