The St Helena Police Directorate has recently welcomed two new appointments with Kim Yon joining the Immigration Office and Joseph Phippard joining the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
Kim, who transferred from HM Customs & Excise, has settled into her new role as Secretary to the Immigration Control Board/Auxiliary Immigration Officer. She is responsible for providing secretarial services to the Immigration Control Board (ICB) as well as performing Auxiliary Immigration Officer duties as and when required.
The duties of Kim's post include arranging and attending ICB meetings to take minutes on a monthly basis and ensuring minutes of meetings are produced and follow up actions carried out � all within set timeframes. She also provides operational support to the Immigration Team, assisting with passenger arrivals and departures at the air and sea ports.
Detective Constable, Joseph Phippard, has returned to the Island having previously spent a year within the CID. He now looks forward to a further two years within the Police Directorate.
Joe has completed over 30 years within the field of investigations and is also a qualified trainer with experience of training Police Officers in places such as Tanzania and Qatar.
Joe hopes to put his experience to good use on St Helena in a way that will promote the Police Directorate and benefit the residents of the Island.
On a personal note, Joe is looking forward to renewing old friendships, re-joining his shooting club in Jamestown, and playing his Euphonium.
