Twenty-nine senior officers from Police, Customs and Defense Force have graduated a three-day First Line Supervisory Course. The course began Monday (Feb. 24) and was instructed by Sergeant Joy Nelson of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Houston, Texas. Police Commissioner Celvin G. Walwyn said, “We are training all of those officers, sergeants and corporals, promoted under my command.”While that course was underway 22 lower ranked officers from the three agencies attended a High Risk Emergency Response Course, facilitated by Deputy Sheriff Robert Miller. At the closing ceremony Wednesday, the law enforcement personnel were admonished to pass what they had learned in the ‘train the trainers’ course on to those under their command. The participants were given certificates of completion and some of the senior officers were given copies of the training manual written by the Commissioner during his time as a US law enforcement officer. CoP Walwyn thanked the US officers for conducting the rigorous courses. He told The Observer the St. Kitts-Nevis Police Force has established a sister law enforcement agency relationship with the Harris County Sheriff Office that is proving to be very beneficial to the federation. “Sheriff Adan Garcia approved the travel for the instructors. The Sheriff told me as a former Harris County Deputy Sheriff, I am still family and his office will assist the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force with training whenever requested.”These courses are among many that have been implemented by the Commissioner in order to build capacity in the Force.
