A team from the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies, in conjunction with USNORTHCOM and the Rhode Island National Guard, led an Ethics Workshop and Military Justice Seminar at Coral Harbour Base from June 3 to June 5, 2024. This initiative aimed to reform the military justice system and establish new ethics regulations, marking a significant step towards fostering a more professional workforce focused on performance excellence.

The four-day engagement was designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of military personnel in legal ethics, military justice, and professional conduct. Facilitators from the Rhode Island National Guard and two renowned institutions shared their expertise, providing Defence Force personnel from Prosecution, Human Resources, Legal, Intelligence, and Administration with invaluable insights and practical tools to elevate the Defence Force’s military culture.

A key outcome of the engagement was the development of proposed ethics regulations intended to improve accountability, transparency, and integrity within the military justice system. Commander Origin Deleveaux, Base Executive Officer, stated that these regulations would serve as a guiding framework for all military personnel, ensuring they uphold the highest ethical standards in their daily operations. He emphasized that it is the vision of the Commander Defence Force to advance the organization towards a professional workforce focused on performance excellence, with these regulations facilitating an enhanced ethical and professional culture.

It is the intent of Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King to remain committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and ethics within the organization. “This training engagement has been instrumental in helping us achieve that goal, and we are confident that it will have a lasting impact on the way we operate as a military force,” stated Commodore Raymond King.

The Officers and Marines of the Defence Force extend their gratitude to the facilitators from the Rhode Island National Guard, Defense Institute of International Legal Studies, and Defense Security Cooperation University for their invaluable contributions to the success of the engagement. Their expertise and dedication have been pivotal in shaping the future of our military justice system.
