Financial Investigators Complete Training Course


Some 50 public sector financial investigators from Jamaica and other Caribbean countries, have completed a short intensive training course.They graduated recently from the Caribbean Regional Drug Law Enforcement Training Centre at Twickenham Park in St. Catherine.
The participants were drawn from the Police, Customs, Defence Forces and Financial Investigation Units in 14 English-speaking countries across the Caribbean.Director/Principal of the Caribbean Regional Drug Law Enforcement Training Centre, Bertram Millwood said the graduates would now be better able to execute drug law enforcement interdictions. “They will be better equipped to carry out their financial investigations in terms of the Proceeds of Crime and Money Laundering Acts across the Caribbean,” he told JIS News. The persons selected were already engaged in the field, particularly in the area of money laundering. “We are strengthening the capability of officers involved in drug law enforcement, in respect of the techniques to be used, making them more effective in their general operations,” Mr. Millwood pointed out. The participants were taken from the rank of Inspector up to Superintendent for the Police. For the Military, the persons were drawn from the rank of Captain, and for Customs, they were invited from the Management and Supervisory levels. Some of the participating countries were Barbados, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago and the British Virgin Islands
