Tertiary training for police

dlpmanifestotrumpetBarbadian police and their regional counterparts will be getting a special tertiary institution catering to their educational needs.

In its 2013 manifesto, the Democratic Labour Party is promising to “upgrade the status of the Regional Police Training Centre to a college with consequential upgrading of curricula”.

This was among pledges the current governing party is making to local lawmen.

A new Democratic Labour Party administration would also continue to upgrade the technical capacity of the Royal Barbados Police Force through training; upgrade and expand the range of management training; replace outdated equipment; continue the refurbishment of police stations; refurbish the Central Police headquarters building; and expand the range of community policing.

“The police are the main civil authority with responsibility for the maintenance of law and order during times of normalcy. They are the first line of defence of our democratic way of life,” the manifesto said.

“A well- trained, professional police establishment is essential to the creation of an environment that is conducive to the attraction of new investments from local and foreign sources, and the sustained improvement in the quality of life of our people.” (SC)
