Seventeen police officers were awarded for their work in the programme, which ran from July 14 to mid-October. Some of the areas covered included: Personal Development, Leadership Skills, Human Resource Management and Principles of Management, among others.

Delivering brief remarks, Commissioner of Police Keith Miller noted that the main aim of the programme was to develop a cadre of officers to manage and coordinate the function of an effective Human Resources Department. The top cop further added that the human resource is one of the most important parts of any organisation and its development is always key. Miller said that he hopes the skills and knowledge gained by the officers will be implemented to coincide with the vision of the local constabulary.

In his feature address, Brian Toppin, Research and Training Advisor at the Cave Hill School of Business, said that with an ever-changing world, new initiatives must be implemented to keep up with the times. “It is a new era and we have to develop a cadre of skills and competence in order to move forward,” Toppin highlighted. Toppin urged the participants to be an example for other officers by offering them guidance and advice. (KW)
