February 3, 2017

Two prison officers from Bermuda’s Department of Corrections have undergone training in the Cayman Islands, according to a story in the Cayman Compass.

The story said “Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service has helped train two prison officers from Bermuda’s Department of Corrections in the use of force.

“The two Bermudian prison officers, Steven Simons and Juan Looby, came to Grand Cayman to complete the Use of Force Training course with the two internationally certified HMCIPS instructors in order to train their own prison staff, according to a press release from the Cayman prison service. Nine new recruits in the local prison service also took the course as part of their training program.

“Use of force in the correctional setting is often relied upon by prison officers as a means of safety and maintaining order,” Cayman Prison Director Neil Lavis said.

“This course is designed to teach prison officers the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and successfully handle any situation they may find themselves in while on the job.”
