On Friday, July 23, 2021, at the Police Headquarters on Grand Turk and Providenciales, Commissioner of Police Trevor Botting swore in the recruits.

They are Constables Tlincha Garconville, Jumaine O. Jackson, Gassen Michel, Dacliche Clervil, Domereo Outten, Sashana Condace Carter, Mereasa Colahar, Dujuanna Fulford, Clinton Simmons, and District Constable Jean Mary will now embark on a detailed training programme within the Force ahead of training at the Police Training College later this year.

In welcoming them, Commissioner Botting described their addition to the force as a proud day in the life of the organization, which he said continues to build human resources.

“Being formally sworn is a proud moment for every police officer. A career in policing is like no other. It is a career full of challenges, enjoyment, and incredible job satisfaction, and I’m proud to welcome these recruits as they pursue this career with us,” he said.

The commissioner continued: “There is much to learn, especially as public safety changes over time. I’m confident that each of them will bring valuable insight, experience and skills to our organization that will assist us in delivering on our priorities to protect and serve the communities in the Turks and Caicos Islands.”

For his address to the recruits, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Rodney Adams, reminded them of the importance of teamwork and service to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

“You’ve made the positive steps. Public service is a calling and not just a job, and it’s always necessary and very demanding. You must always maintain integrity as you serve the people of the Country,” he encouraged.

“I want to thank you for your willingness to serve this community. Taking this step to serve is an honour. It is something we don’t take lightly in the RTCIPF.”

Also addressing the recruits was Assistant Commissioner of Police Kendall Grant, who said: “We are extremely proud and excited to grow the ranks of our police force. However, you must understand that building relationships with the community is critical in Policing in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

“Join us as we try to change the negative outlook on law enforcement. Be a positive influence to the residents you come in contact with; Do well and make us all proud”.
