Dick disclosed that having had the opportunity to serve in the RSVGPF is a moment that he will always cherish. He stated that he and his brother, Fitzgerald Dick who is also a former police officer decided that they would ‘give back’ to the Police Force in some tangible way.
He went on to say “this is the first venture that we are on. We are from Stubbs so we want to donate these items to the Commissioner of Police and other members of the Police Force.” Dick further stated “we are going to continue to supply all of the creamers and the other things to go with the coffee maker because we know that the officers have to work for long hours. According to Dick, they intend to make similar donations to as many police stations as possible.
Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John accepted the items on behalf of the RSVGPF. He thanked the Dick brothers and commended them for choosing to give back to the organization.
