The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) will be adding four new law enforcement vehicles to their police fleet through a direct investment from the Hon Andrew A. Fahie administration.

“The arrival of the four new vehicles is timely, as the Territory continues to prepare for the reopening of the borders in the Virgin Islands on December 1, 2020,” Premier Fahie said.

Hon Fahie continued, “As a Government, we will continue to ensure that financial allocations are made to provide the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF), HM Customs and Immigration Department with the resources needed to perform in managing crime in our Territory.”

Law enforcement integral to COVID-19 management


Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, local law enforcement have played a key role in policing the streets and protecting the borders through a joint task force.

“I thank the men and women of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, Her Majesty Customs and the Immigration Department for all the work they do to keep us all safe,” Hon Fahie added.

The Fahie administration further noted that it will continue to ensure that financing is allocated in the annual budget for Her Majesty’s Customs, Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, Immigration Department, Virgin Islands Fire and Rescue Service Department, and Her Majesty’s Prison to aid the organizations in carrying out their mandate.
