Security officers from St Vincent were among twenty-three men and women from five Regional Security System (RSS) territories, that successfully graduated from a six-week long Section Leaders Course on Friday, December 16.
Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, commended the graduands for taking the bold step of advancing their career goals.
“The RSS is an important regional body and in the context of what is happening regionally, Caribbean-wise, and even globally with respect to crime, we have come to appreciate the importance of such a body,” said the minister of national security.
The minister of national security recognized the hard working officers for completing such an integral training that will assist greatly in serving the region.
Harris encouraged the security officers who remain committed to serve and protect both within and outside the region to always be vigilant.
The course which commenced on November 07, 2016, was organized by the Regional Security System in collaboration with the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF) and the St. Kitts – Nevis Defence Force (SKNDF). It was funded by the International Law Enforcement and Narcotics Office of the United States Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Participants hailed from the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda (RPFAB), Barbados Defence Force (BDF), Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF), and host country Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF) and the St. Kitts – Nevis Defence Force (SKNDF).
