Deputy Compol attends training workshop in New Orleans

Deputy Commissioner of police Chester Williams left the Country once again on another training work shop. A couple weeks ago, Williams attended a training in Uruguay with High Ranking officers of various Nations. Yesterday, Williams told the media that he would be leaving the country for a week to be a part of a ‘Cure Crime’ workshop in New Orleans.

Chester Williams, Deputy Commissioner of Police: Yes I’ll be out of the country for a week. I will be attending New Orleans for a Cure Violence Workshop, it is myself and someone from Belize. We will be going to that event.

Reporter: Sir you recently came from an event at Uruguay as well. In these events, do we gain anything in term of, I know that theoretically knowledge is gained, but really what is needed is work on the ground. How do you translate the theory into practical application when situations are evolving in real time.

Chester Williams, Deputy Commissioner of Police: It has a lot to do with the individual Jules. Whatever I learnt when I go on any training, I always ensure that I look at the best practices and whatever is conducive for us in Belize, I would adopt it. There are times when you need to make some adjustments so that it can suit our circumstances, and that’s what good leaders do. We try to see how we can take whatever we learn somewhere and we bring it into our department and ensure that we make our functions much better.
