Training

Prior to 2009 officers joining the Royal Montserrat Police Service received their initial police training at the Regional Police Training Centre in Barbados. In 2009, the RMPS embarked on its initiative to train officers locally. The aim of this was to tailor training to fit the needs of policing in Montserrat. This would allow the trainee officers the ability to familiarize themselves with the populace, geography, history and laws specific to their jurisdiction. In a community such as Montserrat local knowledge is crucial and sometimes even lifesaving, being trained locally lends the advantage of assembling a solid local knowledge base before the officers even pass out. In December 2009 the first set of officers were ably trained, this batch consisted of six (6) officers (course 1). In June 2010 a further nine (9) officers (course 2) and in November 2011 six (6) officers (course 3) successfully passed out and have successfully assimilated with their peers in the RMPS. On Friday 15th March 2013, four (4) officers graduated from the local training program. To date twenty six (26) officers have been trained in Montserrat, much to the pride and benefit of the RMPS.

Lasting for six months the initial police training is a live-in course where recruits are taught the police way of life. During this period recruits will experience a positive change, civic development and an improvement in their way of thinking as they transform from a civilian way of thinking to the police way of life. Recruits also bond with each other forming strong friendships, understanding and respect which is vital in the field. This is where espirit de core develops. In addition to instilling discipline, team building and pushing the boundaries of what was once thought to be their breaking points recruits receive formal training in areas as follows: physical training; core policing; history of policing and the Force; laws of Montserrat; the legal system; courts and there functions; public speaking; customer service; victim care; care and custody of prisoners; military drills; officer safety; weapons training; culture; etc
