By Aaron Humes: We told you yesterday about the Police Department’s Eastern Rural Division Christmas initiative, in which they gave out $2,000 in hundred-dollar bills to area residents along the Philip Goldson Highway, travelling in buses.
We will have reaction on that later, but first, today it was the Police’s turn to receive a gift worth thousands more.
It is a Great Wall Wingle 5 pickup truck donated by National Aggregates Limited, whose public relations officer, Amanda Arguelles, says they contributed as a way of helping Police to do their work.
Accepting the donation on behalf of the Police was Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster, who says the vehicle will be immediately pressed into service along the George Price Highway.
The 26 thousand dollar vehicle is valuable and will be lovingly treated by the Department’s drivers, according to Broaster.
