Local author Cathy Gomez recently took a trip down memory lane with Deputy Police Commissioner Anthony Ennis and Assistant Collector of Customs Jeff Jackson. The purpose of her visit was to donate two copies of her book Coping with Sudden Job Loss to the RCIPS and Customs.
“These donations are very special to me,” said Ms Gomez. “For 20 years prior to the development of the current forensic lab, I was the official drug and alcohol analyst for the RCIPS and HM Customs. Both Mr. Ennis and Mr. Jackson were at the beginning of their careers, and I am so proud of them today.
“It is my hope that my book will serve as an important and positive resource to the staff of their respective organisations.”
Mr. Ennis said, “Having known Ms Gomez in a professional capacity for almost all of my entire police career, in particular as a young officer, she was always available during and outside of normal working hours to provide valuable expertise and support as the sole drug and alcohol analyst to the Police Service.
“I was therefore delighted to personally accept on behalf of the Commissioner of Police and my fellow colleagues, a copy of her book, which will be placed in the RCIPS Training Library”.
