Bodden Town Primary students with marine officers in front of the Guardian

(CNS): The RCIPS Joint Marine Unit recently hosted 32 Year 1 Bodden Town Primary School students during their daylong field trip to various emergency-response departments. During their visit on Friday, 28 April, Senior Captain PC Hugh Bush and Customs Officer Randolph Jackson presented the duties of the police marine officers, describing a typical day for a police captain or navigator.

The children also boarded vessels while marine officers described the controls and functions of the boats.

Inspector Leo Anglin, marine commander, said of the visit, “If we are looking for future leaders in the police, recruiting starts now in the schools and what better way to introduce these children to the possibility of a police career and maybe pique their interest than for them to see for themselves what our daily work looks like?

“I think they saw during their visit that our jobs are tough, yes, but rewarding.”
