The Police Cooperative Credit Union (PCCU) has again partnered with the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force in sponsoring the competition. Since 2012, the Police Credit Union has been the major sponsor of the event.

Last week, retired Commissioner of Police, Michael Charles, treasurer to the Board of Directors of the PCCU, handed over a sponsorship cheque in the sum of $7,800 to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Carlos Sampson to offset expenses for this year’s contest.

Charles said that the PCCU board is committed to the sponsoring the Police Carolling Contest because it is one of the most tangible ways in which the Credit Union can give back to the Police Force, which is responsible for the birth of the Credit Union.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Sampson expressed gratitude on behalf of the Police Force for the sponsorship over the years. Samson said that the Police Force values the commitment of the credit union in sponsoring the contest over the years and gave the assurance that the monies will be well spent.
