The largest group of Caymanians to join the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service will graduate on Thursday after completing 12 weeks of intensive theoretical and practical training.
Training manager Andrew Harrison said in addition to classroom lessons, the recruits completed on-the-job training with personal tutor constables.
After graduating, the new officers will return to their assigned stations and tutor constables for a further six-week assessment period.
Mr. Harrison said after successful completion, each officer would be deemed “fit for independent patrol.”
He added, “During this period, as well as throughout the rest of their two-year probationary period, the officers’ work will be continually monitored by Royal Cayman Island Police Service management.”
The recruits will graduate at the Harquail Theatre in a ceremony with Governor Helen Kilpatrick, Premier Alden McLaughlin, Deputy Governor Franz Manderson and Police Commissioner David Baines in attendance.
