On Sunday 12th February, 2017, at 2:00pm, the quaint settlement of Deadman's Cay came alive as the Long Island Police Division held its Annual Church Service at St. Athanasius Anglican Church, Long Island.

The service was attended by Member of Parliament for Long-Island, Loretta Butler-Turner, Senator Jude Knowles, Island Administrator Terrece Bootle-Bethel, Chief Councillor Ian Knowles, members of the clergy, business persons and a large sector of residents and visitors from communities throughout the island. Also in attendance at the service were officers from the Bahamas Customs Department, Road Traffic Department and other Government Agencies.

Father Alvardo Adderley, Rector of St. Paul's Anglican Parish, South Long Island delivered the sermon; his text was taken from Matthew 5:1-12. Father Adderley reminded the congregation that God blesses those who work for peace.

Following the service, officers from the various law enforcement agencies paraded along Queen's Highway and concluded at Police Headquarters, Deadman's Cay. The crowd of on-lookers were delighted and filled with enthusiasm and joy as they were treated to several musical selections by members of the world renowned Royal Bahamas Police Force Band, under the command of Inspector Julian Darville.

On completion of the Church Service & Parade, the Police Department fed over 200 persons that attended the service.

It was a beautiful day in Long Island!
