After a week of intensive training, seven Airport Security Unit recruits will begin work at the Owen Roberts International Airport this week.
The Cayman Islands Airports Authority recruited Caymanians Darvin Watson, Gerald Horton, Daniel Hydes, Ricardo Conolly, Ronaldo Douglas, Jehu Rivers and Chase Green on April 8. The recruits averaged 98 percent in their final exams, according to a press release from the Airports Authority.
“This was the highest scoring class that we have had so far,” said Shane Bothwell, the Airports Authority’s chief security officer, in the release. “I would like to congratulate the young officers for all their hard work, and I wish them success in the future.”
The seven new officers will begin working at the airport on April 12, where they will carry out duties in “safeguarding civil aviation operations within the Cayman Islands against unlawful interference,” the release stated.
