New intake of constables recruited for RGP training school

A fresh batch of police recruit constables will soon be completing their 19 week basic training school at New Mole House Police Headquarters.

The course commenced in August 2019 and combined classroom work with practical activities.

The 19 recruits, a mix of male and females aged between 19 and 45, received instruction in relevant policing areas including interviewing techniques, unarmed defence tactics, the role and powers of a police officer, criminal legislation, practical scenarios & role plays together with other specialist skills.

Having successfully completed their basic training, following the passing out parade, the recruits will be attached to operational duties for two weeks along with the training staff and will then assume general independent patrolling and other operational police duties in January.

Inspector John Olivera said: “The Recruitment and Training Team have high hopes for this recruit class and look forward to seeing them develop over the coming months and in their future careers.”

The passing out parade was yesterday.
