PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — On Monday, May 23, the Justice Minister Edson Kirindongo, while on an official visit at police headquarters in Philipsburg, and the representative/real estate agent of Remax Elite Antonio Pomato, signed the final documents for the purchase of the SOREMAR building located on Orange Grove Road in Cole Bay.
The signing of those documents was witnessed by Chief of Police Carl John, and several other officers that were present.
The purchase of the SOREMAR building, to be used by the KPSM, was an issue that has been in discussion for over a year. The KPSM, who has been in serious need of a proper facility, will install two indoor shooting ranges, provide space for physical training for their personnel, for the expansion of the Forensic Department, and installation of the Emergency Dispatch Center.
The purchase of this building is a major step forward for KPSM where the training of its personnel is concerned in order to improve their skills and level of professionalism. The Minister of Justice saw this as a necessity for the Justice Department, and did his best to see this become a reality.
