San Roman Chairman Makes Appeal to Police Department

And while the incident is isolated, Chairman of San Roman, Augustine Choc, says that it also brings into focus the need for police presence in the village. He says that a call was made to the substation in the neighbouring village of Santa Cruz, and the officers responded to the scene. But in other instances, the request for police assistance has not been forthcoming.

“What I feel right now, because sometimes I call police, sometimes they are fighting on the road and I call police and dehn noh respond. So what I need to say right now, I know they will hear my voice and when I call them, they supposed to come to see what happened ina my village. And the next time I want to say is I need a police station ina di village because San Roman and Santa Rosa is very big.”

“So the nearest police station is where?”


Augustine Choc

“From Santa Cruz. And sometimes I call Santa Cruz and they never respond. They don’t respond. Sometimes they tell me yo have to call independence. That’s what they told me.”


Duane Moody

“Which is even further away.”
