Police training to resume soon
A FRESH BATCH of police officers is expected to graduate from the Regional Police Training Centre (RPTC) early next year.
Speaking to the issue of recruitment at the long-awaited Annual General Meeting of the Barbados Police Association Attorney General, Adriel Brathwaite, has pledged that classes for the new officers will resume in September.
A faulty roof had temporarily halted training, but Brathwaite said he had spoken to Chief of Staff of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) Colonel Alvin Quintyne, who had agreed to allow the RPTC to use the BDF facilities which are nearby.
The man who holds responsibility for security said close to 90 people are being vetted for the next intake. The last batch of recruits left the RPTC in September 2013. (YB)
