OFFICERS of the Emergency Response Group (ERG) in the Correctional Services of Solomon Islands (CSSI) are urged to maintain their skills learnt during a one-week intensive Public Order Management (POM) training from August 13-17, 2018 at the Rove Police Headquarters in Honiara.
Trainers from the Police Response Team (PRT) within the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) delivered the training to the CSSI officers.
A second group consisting of 22 ERG officers of the CSSI demonstrated their skills at Hells Point, East of Honiara on August 17, 2018.
Speaking after the demonstration at Hells Point, Supervising Deputy Commissioner National Security and Operational Support, Simpson Pogeava says, “Today you have completed your training on POM.
“I understand it was not an easy training but both executives of the CSSI and the RSIPF are proud to see what you have demonstrated so far.
“It is good to see that we share our capabilities in this kind of training and we will continue to do so as we work together to fight against crime in our society.
“I am looking forward for you to demonstrate those skills when you go out into the field.
“Maintain the skills that you have learnt. I would also want to encourage you to maintain the team work and make all effort to implement what you have learnt.”
The levels one and two of the POM training were conducted for two CSSI ERG teams for two weeks at the Rove Police Headquarters.
48 CSSI officers participated in the POM training.
Six instructors from the ERG are now qualified as levels one and two trainers to maintain training within the CSSI.
