Bravo Grand Palm!

Last week the Grand Palm Hotel & Casino donated P200 0000 worth of porta cabins to the Police for use to roll out the volunteer police programme.

This contribution by the Grand Palm is welcome indeed at this time when  the police budget is inadequate due to the shrinking national coffers. Shortage of financial resources this financial year is sure to impact on a number of developmental projects and there can be no opportune time than this for the private sector to stand up and be counted by lending a hand to prop up our economy.

The roll out of the community police programme in particular is going to depend on the cooperation of the private sector and the community so that the government would come in and help where efforts are already being made by other stakeholders.Grand Palm Hotel and Casino have shown that companies can invest in their  own security by working with the community in which they operate. Reduction of crime in Block 6 and Block 5 as a result of the new satellite police stations would not only benefit the Resort but the community as a whole, everyone needs a peace of mind while they are sleeping, or at work, or away on holiday. Grand Palm has shown that indeed, it takes the contribution of all stakeholders, particularly the private sector and the members of the community to make the city crime-free. It is interesting to note that the Grand Palm did not use the global financial recession as an excuse not to acquire the porta cabins for the Block 6 & Block 5 communities.
