Ten outstanding students from the fifth-form class of the Ottos Comprehensive School were recently recognized for their participation in the Business Sensitization Program, a partnership between the school and the police.
The students were awarded certificates of completion by the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Atlee Rodney, after successfully completing a two-week internship with the police.
Throughout the program, which ran from December 4th to December 15th, the students had the opportunity to work alongside traffic officers, firefighters, the Forensic Evidence Recovery Unit, and the telecommunications department.
They also received a tour of the main training institution at the Sir Wright F. George Police Academy.
In recognition of their achievement, the students were invited to participate in the Commissioner’s Annual Christmas Message on December 19th at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
Commissioner Rodney took the opportunity to thank the students and all those involved in making the program a success, as well as commend the principal and staff of the Ottos Comprehensive School for their partnership with the police.
He encouraged other schools to take advantage of similar opportunities in the future.
The program was coordinated by Inspector Frankie Thomas and Constable Latisha Browne, and provided the students with valuable insight into the workings of the police department.
Congratulations to all the students on their well-deserved recognition!
