Officer Robelto Hodge promoted to Inspector

ST. EUSTATIUS--Police Officer Robelto Hodge has become Inspector Hodge. His promotion was celebrated Friday by his colleagues of the St. Eustatius Police Force together with family members.
 
Acting Chief of Police Force Caribbean Netherlands KPCN Michiel Marchand and Statia’s Police Chief Maurice van Velzen were present to pin the new badge on Hodge’s shoulders.

Many family members and well-wishers attended the ceremony. Also present in his role as head of Public Order and Safety was Government Commissioner Mike Franco.
 
A toast was made, after which the celebration ended with a small reception, during which snacks and drinks were served.
