Nassau, Bahamas - The Royal Bahamas Police Force Dependants’ Trust received a recent donation from Consolidated Water Corporation (CWCO) Bahamas, Ltd. to help the Trust fulfil its mission of assisting the school-age dependants of police officers who have died or become incapacitated in the line of duty.

According to Trust Administrative Assistant Maria C. Johnson, the funds will go mostly towards tuition. “The Trust has been established to assist the continued education of dependants up to age 18. Sometimes it goes beyond that, and the Trust will offer financial assistance during college for dependants as well. It’s all about helping our own Bahamian people. It’s funded through the generosity of corporate citizens like CWCO, individuals, and the founder.

“The Trust is a worthy cause. It is helping the loved ones of those who help us every day – some of whom have died protecting us as citizens. The police force is quite an interesting operation. We on the outside don’t know the half of it.”

CWCO is a long-time sponsor of the Trust. General Manager Bryan Russell said, “We’ve supported them [the Trust] the best we can. We’re happy to be a part of it because often people want to complain about crime and the police without understanding what they go through. They provide an extremely valuable service for our community, and without them there would be anarchy.”
