Defence Headquarters, 4 March ‘24 (RBDF): In a new initiative, thirty-six (36) Officers from the Bahamas Department of Immigration, have successfully
completed Classification Training, hosted by the Royal Bahamas Defence Force
(RBDF), equipping the officers with a diverse skillset crucial for effective border
security and internal protection.

The three-week training at Coral Harbour Base, began on January 22, 2024, and
took Officers from the Immigration Special Tactics Unit through a rigorous
program which included subjects such as: Duties of a Sentry, Use of Force
Continuum, Detention Center Protocol, Human Rights, Combat Tactics, Tactical
Combat Casualty Care, Rules of Engagement, among others. Under the expert guidance of Chief Instructor, Chief Petty Officer Roscoe Greene, and Instructors from the Commando Squadron Naval Infantry School, the training aimed to better equip Immigration Officers for the various roles at the Carmichael Road Detention Center on Golden Isles Road.

Culminating in the Warrior Endurance Exercise and a comprehensive theory exam,
the participants were able to demonstrate their proficiency across all disciplines.
Highlighting the significance of this collaboration, both organizations expressed
their commitment to fostering a relationship that enhances the overall effectiveness of the nation’s armed and security forces. The course coordinators, included Acting Commander Edward Fritz, Lieutenant Nicholas Cartwright, Chief Petty Officer Roscoe Greene, Petty Officer Vandyke Adderley, and Petty Officer Javier Forbes. In the closing certificate presentation, the participants were commended for their dedication and were urged to uphold the highest standards at the Detention Center.

This training effort is important in ensuring officers possess a comprehensive skill
set to tackle the complexities of their duties effectively. The inter-agency
cooperation between the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and the Bahamas
Department of Immigration reinforces the collective commitment to safeguarding
the nation’s borders, and securing internal stability. The training and certificates
awarded to the officers mark a significant step towards a more cohesive and robust
approach to national security.
