Mold continues to rock Road Town Police Station

Mold continues to rock Road Town Police Station

As the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) celebrates Police Week 2022, word reaching our newsroom from many officers is that all is not well.

Officers speaking to our news centre on condition of anonymity disclosed that the Road Town Police Station is an unhealthy place to work.

According to them, many officers and civilian staff have complained of mold that continues to threaten their health.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force falls under the portfolio of the UK-appointed Governor John J. Rankin, CMG.


Officers & civilians are getting sick


Many Officers are often sick allegedly due to the mold, while others can no longer work in the main police building in Road Town.

Many officers and a few civilian staff have had to make frequent medical visits because of the mold, according to reports.

Following the 2017 hurricanes, the Road Town Police Station building was damaged but has since been repaired.

It is also our understanding that the Government of the Virgin Islands has spent thousands of dollars to remedy the mold situation at the Road Town Police station but the issues still persist, affecting many who occupy the building.

The police force falls under the portfolio of the UK-appointed Governor John J. Rankin, CMG.

Police Media Liaison Diane L. Drayton, when asked about the reports of mold at Road Town Police Station, said a response would be forthcoming.
