32 recruits complete 6-month basic police training

Some 32 new police officers are now officially on duty in the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF), signaling their completion of six months of basic police training.

The commencement ceremony of Cohort 6 was held on the lawns of H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) in Paraquita Bay on Thursday, May 18, 2023.

Cohort 6 is made up of 14 constables and 18 auxiliaries, with an even number of males as females.

The new officers are expected to fill vacancies in the newly restarted community policing division which is intended to forge greater or more lasting relations between the public and the Force.

“This boost in the number of officers will also provide more visibility on the streets and needed public assurance,” the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) stated in a press release on May 22, 2023.

Recipient of the President’s Award for Excellence for Best Recruit, the Commissioner’s Award for Best Recruit and the DCP Award for Best All-Around Recruit was Constable Keimar Greene, left. Right is Commissioner of Police Mark Collins.
