Minister of National Security the Hon. Marvin Dames said the increasing volume, variety and velocity of security threats have drastically changed and are expected to continue to evolve. “Therefore, today’s law enforcement professional must have education intangibles that a college student has. Furthermore, he or she must have the inclination for continued learning,” Minister Dames said while speaking at the launch ceremony for a Senior Professional Certification in Law Enforcement Leadership Programme at The University of The Bahamas, Monday, March 4. It is expected that the course participants will be exposed to a range of modules on written and oral communications, finance, budgeting human resource management and critical global issues and trends facing law enforcement leaders, he said.
In addition, Minister Dames said senior officers from the Royal Bahamas Police Force and the Department of Corrections will have the opportunities to participate in international leadership training initiatives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Leadership Programme and the Executive Management Programme at Northwestern University’s Centre for public safety.
