RUNAWAY BAY, St Ann:

Police personnel at Runaway Bay police station in St Ann are having life at work a little more comfortable, thanks to Bahia Principle Jamaica Resorts.

Last Thursday, the hotel, through its contractors, Therrestra Construction and WICAN Supplies, spent a day carrying out multiple repairs to the police station.

This includes painting, electrical and plumbing work and floor stripping and buffing. A new four-burner gas stove was also donated to the station.

The hotel's chief of security, Dalton Davidson, said the workday represents, "an opportunity to pay our respect for the unwavering support from the officers at the station."

Meanwhile, Bahia's social relations manager, Farrah Blake, said the work day was part of the hotel's mission to assist in the development of the community within which they operate. According to Blake, the Runaway Bay police play a very important role in the community.

Grand Bahia Principe was opened in Runaway Bay in 2007 by the Spanish investors Grupo Pinero. The hotel was recently expanded to accommodate its luxury hotel, and renamed Bahia Principe Jamaica Resorts. The five-star all-inclusive hotel boasts more than 1,400 rooms divided into two smaller brands to accommodate its Luxury (Adults Only) and Grand (Family) components.
