Two dozen officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force recently completed an “Interview Skills and Management and Leadership for Supervisory Officers” training course, according to the Police Information Office.

During the course, which began Oct. 21 and ended Nov.15, the 24 participants, many of whom were sergeants and newly promoted inspectors, learned interview skills for supervisory officers, according to the PIO.

They also received training in management and leadership skills, which consisted of seven modules covering subjects including human rights, discrimination, conditioning and limiting assumptions.

Additionally, the session touched on areas including communication, decision-making skills, conflict resolution and networking.

“All participants engaged fully with the course, demonstrating a level of understanding and knowledge as is required by officers of inspector rank within the RVIPF,” the press release stated.
