Cops benefit from operational training

Special Superintendent Trevor Reid addressing ranks during the OPR session held in Bartica

FORTY-five cops within ‘F’ Division (Interior locations) recently attended a training session on professionalism conducted by the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).

The event was held at the Bartica Magistrate’s Court by Special Superintendent, Trevor Reid and Assistant Superintendent, Terrence Browne of the OPR.

During the session, the ranks were educated on what is expected of them when dealing with situations such as neglect of duty, ethics and courtesy, corruption, roles of supervisors, proper record keeping and professionalism.

The training is part of the on-going reformation process to have a more professional and proactive Police Force.

Some 188 ranks already benefitted from similar training conducted in Berbice, Essequibo and the Linden Police Divisions.
