Police stations decorated for Christmas

Two months ago, decorator and event planner Robert Solomon challenged other decorators to pick a police station in the area where they live and decorate it for Christmas.

With the blessing of Nicole Dyer-Griffith, patron of the Police Wives Association and founder of the ISOS (I Support Our Services) campaign, an Kirk Jean-Baptiste from the ISOS, scores of decorators answered the call for the Beautify a Police Station Christmas Project 2019.

Solomon, who undertook to decorate the St Joseph Police Station, has already completed the job, as well as the Toco Police Station.

He is currently in New York, USA, getting decor for the driveway of the police commissioner's residence.

Thanks to corporate sponsorship, he said, “We are transforming the entire driveway.”

An excited Solomon called Newsday on November 15 to say: “The levels people have gone to are just phenomenal. I am completely overwhelmed.”

Solomon said some police officers are in shock and can’t believe citizens have come forward for the project.

He added: “Spending hours with the officers too was pleasant and exciting. Some of them even helped with the painting.

“I know I started this initiative, but it is the people who are really the heroes.”
