Personal Policing Motto: "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."

Why I Serve: This is a community-oriented team. As the name implies, Community Action Team, means that the Bermuda Police Service team up with the community, and perform a positive action, ending with a positive result. Long gone are the days where police should do everything, while the public sit idly by and watch as things unfold; whereby the police are searching for information that the public already have, but refuse to give. We are in the days where there is unity in the community with police.
