Police received a number of reports of vehicles doing ‘doughnuts’ at the Jamestown Wharf. The public are advised that this is not an accepted cultural act. Drivers as well as pedestrians are put at risk when these acts are carried out. Those responsible are strongly advised to refrain from doing these dangerous acts. The area in question is defined as part of the highway.

Police also carried out community engagement in addition to engaging actively with the many festive events throughout the holiday period. Thanks goes to all the organisers for the events, which were managed well. Further thanks goes out to partnering agencies who supported the Police throughout the year.

St Helena Police would like to wish our community a Happy New Year.

Until next week – Stay Safe!
