Cruise Ship Passengers Need to Feel Safe

Dear Source:
Good afternoon…our family just purchased a home near Frederiksted and are very excited about the cruise ships that are scheduled to start calling on St Croix. We hope that your working group will involve the local police force with discussions on boosting patrols and presence during the stays of these ships. We all know the reasons the ships don't want to call on St Thomas. Word spreads fast when passengers don't feel safe when on the streets /beachs/shopping… Foot and bike patrols should be a welcome to those visiting St Croix.
