The Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) Technical Working Group (TWG), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) concluded its three-day
training and launch of the Caribbean Police Academy Regional Training Initiative.
The venue was the Guyana Police Force Officers Training Centre on Thursday. There was implementing partner, MetroStar Systems, who installed the equipment.
United States Ambassador Perry Holloway officially handed over training equipment valued at over US$23,000 to Guyana Police Force Commissioner Seelall Persaud at the closing ceremony. Ambassador Holloway pledged his government’s “continued support for similar type activities that could ultimately lead to enhancing the security of Guyana and other Caribbean nations.”
The Caribbean Police Academy Regional Training Initiative combines audiovisual hardware— a secure Learning Management System (LMS) called CBSI-Connect, and brings together police academies from countries throughout the Caribbean.
The equipment allows for the ability to collaborate and share training in a virtual, secure environment built exclusively for Caribbean law enforcement officials, as well as the ability to have virtual meetings.
Use of the equipment and the advanced technology also allows for greater communication among participating countries to confront the many security challenges in the region including narcotics trafficking, gang violence and cross border criminality.
Current participating countries are Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Suriname, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Guyana.
This programme, funded through the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), helps strengthen capacity and provide practical skills to relevant security officials working in law enforcement.
Through such CBSI partnerships, the United States and Guyana seek to enhance the bilateral security relationship to create a partnership to combat transnational crime, develop strong security institutions in Guyana, and advance the safety and security of the citizens of Guyana.
