RTCIPF Officers Undergo Advance Firearms Training

Between the 10th and 14th April 2023, the Royal Turks and Caicos Police Force hosted and facilitated an advanced armed policing training event delivered by Law Enforcement Partners from the United States.

This training was delivered to officers from the RTCIPF with students from other British Overseas Territories also in attendance; including the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, Bermuda Police Service and the Royal Anguilla Police Force.

The training, Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT), prepared officers to respond to an active shooter situation. This training was demanding, vigorous, intensive and designed to prepare first responders to isolate, distract, and neutralize persons seeking to cause harm to our communities.

Commissioner of Police Trevor Botting said: ‘We value our relationship and partnership with US Law Enforcement Agencies and I thank the training team for the delivery of an outstanding training event; training which has equipped officers to respond to any high threat to our communities and ensure they are kept safe.

“I was pleased to host colleagues from other British Overseas Territories which has enhanced our ability to support each other for training and operations. All of the officers performed to a high level and were successful through a highly demanding course; I congratulate them on their success.”
