(CNS): Four RCIPS officers were recognised at the recent Truman Bodden Law School graduation ceremony, for either completing courses or receiving degrees. Constable Brandaughn Phillips and Sergeant Sharon Lewis earned University of Liverpool Bachelor of Laws full-time and part-time degrees, respectively.

Superintendent Angelique Howell (commendation) and Constable Harvel Grant (distinction) were recognised for completing the Professional Practice Course (PPC).

In addition, Grant, who received a scholarship from the Police Welfare Association for his studies, was recognised with the O.L. Panton Memorial Prize for best performance in the PPC as well as the Attorney General’s Trophy for best performance in the qualifying examination.

Police Commissioner David Baines noted the difficulty for the officers of furthering their education while handling the responsibilities of their jobs. “I am well aware of the challenges faced by officers studying for a degree whilst working full time. It takes a lot of dedication, and I am delighted for and congratulate each on their success,” he said.

“I also wish to commend the RCIPS Welfare Association for the active support and scholarship funding they have been able to provide, which at times has been critical for officers to be able to seize the opportunity to study and develop themselves.

“This is one of the ways we in the RCIPS seek to ensure we have trained, educated, capable and confident people, able to meet the changing and challenging demands of a modern society. Their individual efforts and success benefit the RCIPS and the Cayman islands as a whole.”

PC Grant thanked the police for their assistance. “I attribute my success in law school to the support and generosity of the RCIPS, especially the Police Welfare Association. I am honoured to be an employee with the RCIPS,” he said.
