CHARLOTTE AMALIE – The Community And Police Association (CAPA) in conjunction with the Red Hook Community Alliance will be conducting a Town Hall Meeting for residents and commercial establishments in the communities of Red Hook, Nadir, and Frydenhoj on Monday August 10 at 6 p.m., at the Paradise Cove Resort in the Inspiration Hall, featuring representatives from the Virgin Islands Police Department.

The second Town Hall meeting will allow community members to voice their concerns, opinions and viable solutions garnered during last week’s meeting to the members of the VIPD who will be in attendance.

CAPA has been working successfully with several community-based organizations on St. Thomas such as the Savan based group, CAN (Community Action Now) and the Smith Bay Community Action Foundation, gathering individuals with definitive concerns and fostering effective results, through collective interaction.

Since organizing the Savan Clean-Up and Restore Project and the Street Naming Project in Smith Bay as part of the Geographic Information System through the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, CAPA is providing the foundation for positive change throughout the community.

Residents and Commercial Establishments within the areas of Red Hook, Nadir and Frydenhoj are strongly encouraged to attend the Town Hall Meeting, taking place on Monday August 10 at 6 p.m. at the Paradise Cove Resort in the Inspiration Hall conducted by the Community And Police Association (CAPA) in conjunction with the Red Hook Community Alliance.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
