Two BPS officers pass top command course
Two senior police officers have passed the course to qualify them for the Commissioner of Police job.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Antoine Daniels and Superintendent Na’imah Astwood passed the strategic command course run by the UK College of Policing in Coventry with distinction — the highest grade.
John Rankin, the Governor, said: “The fact that both graduated with distinction from what I know is a demanding course is huge testament, first and foremost, to their abilities and leadership skills.”
“It is also confirmation of the qualities in the members of the Bermuda Police Service which I have seen throughout my term in office as Governor, and which continue to stand Bermuda in good stead.”
Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley added that the two joined Deputy Commissioner of Police Darrin Simons as qualified for the top role in the service.
Mr Daniels achieved a distinction on the same course last year. He added all three officers had “performed exceptionally well against the most talented senior officers from the UK and overseas.
Mr Corbishley said: “I look forward to ACOP Daniels and Superintendent Astwood bringing back their developed leadership skills and experience to the BPS.”
