NORTHERN CONSTABULARY SUPPORTING THE MÒD
Northern Constabulary are looking forward to a successful Mòd and to assist those visiting the area they have two fluent Gaelic speaking officers who will be on hand full time to provide advice and assistance.
Acting Inspector George Murray who is based in Wick and Constable Torquil Macleod who has been drafted across from Orkney are looking forward to the event and putting their native Gaelic language to good use.
Chief Inspector, Matthew Reiss said “The Northern Constabulary are delighted to be assisting with the first ever Mòd to be held in the unique county of Caithness. We look forward to an enjoyable week for everyone - both for the local population and all the visitors to the county.
“The emphasis will be on community policing given more than a Gaelic flavour by two fluent Gaelic speaking officers who have been assigned full time to the Mòd, namely Acting Inspector George Murray, based at Wick and Constable Torquil Macleod, based on Orkney.
“Officers will be particularly visible on the streets of Wick and Thurso and able to help with any queries, directions or unforeseen difficulties”.
Raymond Bremner, Convenor of the local organising committee added “Northern Constabulary have been very supportive from the word go in helping to get the arrangements in place to ensure that the Mòd is not only successful but safe for locals and visitors alike. I’d like to personally thank Chief Inspector Matthew Reiss for his invaluable input and to the two Gaelic speaking officers who will obviously be very busy for the coming week.”
Northern Constabulary are providing support and assistance to the Local Organising Committee at the various public events including the massed pipe bands march at 6.30pm from the Market Square in Wick to the Assembly Rooms on Friday 8th October for the Opening Ceremony and the march of the Massed Choirs at 10.30am from Thurso High School to the Old Town Hall on Saturday 16th October.
