Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 29, 2015 (SKNIS): St. Kitts and Nevis’ top cop, Acting Commissioner of Police Stafford Liburd, is praising the Government of National Unity for its continued financial support in the fight against crime.
Delivering an address at the closing ceremony of the Bramshill Policing Advisors Investigative Interviewing Training Course on Wednesday, 28 October, Mr. Liburd noted that such training comes at a cost to the Government. He indicated that the safety and security of the citizenry of the Federation is a priority for the Government.
“I wish to thank David King and others for ensuring that this came about in a positive way but certainly, I must give praise to the Government for supporting our initiative of having you here David King and the Bramshill Advisors,” Mr. Liburd said in gratitude for the training offered.
Acting Commissioner Liburd further explained that while there is no instant fix for the crime situation in the Federation, he believes that training programme such as the Bramshill Policing Advisors Investigative Interviewing Training Course will yield positive results in the near future, resulting in a more peaceful St. Kitts and Nevis.
“That is why we have asked the Government to spend the money it is spending on us today as a Force, money that certainly they did not budget for, but the country demands it and it demands of us, as a Police Force, to deliver more,” the top cop said.
Twenty four officers of the Royal St Christopher and Nevis Police Force, two officers of Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise Department and one Child Protection Officer successfully completed the two week Bramshill Policing Advisors Investigative Interviewing Training Course.
