St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Operations at the Dieppe Bay Police Station are expected to resume by the end of 2023 once repairs at the facility are completed, said Superintendent Lyndon David, Officer in charge of District B.
The facility was temporarily closed in the last quarter of 2022, following a need for urgent repairs. The operations of the Dieppe Bay Police Station were transferred to the Tabernacle Police Station as of September 24, 2022.
On Tuesday afternoon, June 20, 2023, Mr. Lyndon David told WINN FM that work had begun at the Dieppe Bay Police Station with hopes that officers assigned to that station can move back to their original workspace upon completion.
“Work is currently being done at the Dieppe Bay Police Station. Right now, the workmen are fixing some leaks and repairing some damaged windows and so on and hopefully by the end of the year, the operations will resume at the station.”
When asked about the presence of mold in the building, Superintendent David said, “The mold issue has been rectified.”
In September 2006, whilst serving as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Timothy Harris signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Mexican Government for financing to construct the Dieppe Bay Police Station. The facility was completed five years after the signing ceremony and took four years to construct.
The doors of the Dieppe Bay Police Station were opened almost twelve years ago on November 14, 2011. The edifice replaced the previous structure that was destroyed by Hurricane George in 1998.
