Commissioner CG Walwyn is extremely proud of the performance of the Police Junior Drum Corps at the 30th Independence Parade that was held at Warner Park Football Stadium yesterday ( 19 September 2013).
The Drum Corps was re-established in 2010, and presently consists of thirty (30) members ranging from 11 to 20 years old, and also ranging from 1st form to the CFB College in the education system.
These young ambitious members of the Drum Corps displayed an excellent performance and impressed the Commissioner of Police and also many of the spectators who attended the parade. This year, the Junior Drum Corps proudly showed off its new ceremonial uniform.
The Senior and Junior Police Drum Corps fall under the leadership and guidance of the Commandant of the Police Training Complex, but, is supervised by the Deputy Commandant, Inspector Eldrin Dickenson, who is assisted with the training by Sylvester Huggins.
