The Regional Security System (RSS), in collaboration with the United Kingdom Security Team will be conducting a three-day Integrity Professional Standards and Anti-Corruption Workshop in Barbados, next week.
It will be held from Monday, November 23, to Wednesday, November 25, at Amaryllis Beach Resort.
Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs, Freundel Stuart, will deliver the feature address and open the workshop on Monday at 8:30 a.m. British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Paul Brummell, will also make brief remarks.
Senior law enforcement officials, including police officers, defence force and customs personnel from the RSS will participate in the seminar. The member states are: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Course facilitators will be from Jamaica, Suriname, Barbados, the United Nations Development Programme and CARICOM’s Implementation Agency for Crime and Security.
The workshop is designed to help participants understand evolving integrity and professional standards and corruption issues, with particular relevance to the Caribbean region.
It will provide an opportunity for participants to recognise the global context of corruption and anti-corruption strategies and to gather impressions and opinions about regional efforts.
The forum will also be useful for the promotion of the building of regional collaboration by sharing experiences and ideas, as countries face common challenges to governance and security.
