Four Police Constables � Amber Isaac, Matthew Edge, Abigail Kirk, and Mark Dalton � were presented with their certificates by Governor Lisa Phillips on Friday, 7 July 2017, after successfully completing their seven week Probationer Constable course.
The training course was delivered by Police Sergeant Craig Ogborne and Police Constable Mark Morrison and covered topics such as St Helena Law & Ordinances, Police Powers & Procedures, Interviewing Witnesses & Victims and Court Procedures.
Acting Chief of Police, Wendy Tinkler, said:
It is extremely satisfying to see our Police Constables complete their Probationer Constable training course and achieve such fantastic examination results. The feedback I have received from the students on the course compiled by Sgt Craig Ogborne has been extremely encouraging and they have obviously thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learning it has given them. It is vitally important to us that our Police Officers receive the investment in training they require to support them in delivering an excellent service to our community. I look forward to watching them progress and putting their knowledge into practice.
Governor Lisa said to the four Police Constables before Friday's presentation:
You are the future of St Helena. When people like myself leave, you will still be here, and St Helena will rely on you to be effective Police Constables. I am really pleased to hear how well you did in your examinations and I hope all the training you have received over the past weeks has prepared you for the future as the Island goes through significant changes.
The Constables will now work with PC Mark Morrison to apply their knowledge to the role they undertake as a Police Constable.
