Police officers of all ranks today [Nov 20] converged on the Police Gym in Prospect for Officer Safety Training [OST]. Until recently only officers at the rank of Chief Inspector and below were required to receive officer safety training.
That now has changed and all officers including the Commissioner [pictured above], must now be Officer Safety Trained.
This acknowledges the fact that all officers can be called upon at a moments notice and they must be prepared. The all inclusive OST has been well received by the Bermuda Police Service, a spokesperson said.
