Forfieted Scooter left at the at the police station in phlipsburg being crushed
In the past few years, the St. Maarten police have taken several scooters and had them impounded due to non-compliance with the technical requirements stipulated by law.
On several requests were issued in the press for the owners of these scooter to retrieve them with the necessary documentation.
However, with the exception of a few owners, not many collected their scooters with the consequence that these remaining scooters were forfeited.
Therefore the Government of St. Maarten has decided that the forfeited scooters would be handed over to a company to be crushed.
For those owners who have the distinct impression that their scooter may still be in the possession of the police, they can come to the police station and make contact with the team leaders and provide them with the necessary documentation.
Community officers of Col-Bay, Simpsonbay and Lowlands are teaming up
As part of providing better service to the community on the other side of the hill (Cole-Bay, Simpson-Bay and Lowlands), the Cole-Bay community officer, Ms. Shawn Crispulo, recently decided to partner up with the new Simpson-bay and Low Lands community officers, Sheron Richardson and John Boyrard, to jointly work on the welfare of their various districts.
Incoming community police officer Sheron Richardson has chosen, improving street lighting in the Simpson-bay area as his first project.
After completing a brief analysis in partnership with GEBE personnel, a scan was conducted of the street lighting in Simpson-Bay. Following the scan, the GEBE team responded quickly by either repairing or replacing the lighting in the Kimsha parking lot.
This is the initial phase of the lighting project being undertaken by the Simpson-bay community officer and GEBE.
The community of Simpson-bay has been requested to provide the community officer with information regarding damaged or malfunctioning lighting in Simpson-bay and the surrounding area.
KPSM takes this opportunity to thank the personell of GEBE for their input in this project.
