With the recent creation of the Private Security Registration Act, Supreme Security has already taken up the mandate to train ALL their officers ahead of the certification date with the third installment of their Basic Security Officer Training course. Julian Rogers, General Manager of Observer Media Group and keynote speaker at the recently held graduation of the trained officers, charged the graduates to contribute to creating a new image for security officers. In his address he stated, "Maintain high standards, and represent the company and the security field which has been somewhat tarnished by negative publicity. Bring back good fortune both on and off duty."'
Captain Lenroy Browne, the company's Managing Director and training officer for the course, reiterated Roger's statements by encouraging the officers to take up the task set before them, "Our company is performance based. It is important that the training learned is put into practice both on and off the job. Once you perform at a high standard you will have opportunities at upward mobility."'
The graduation ceremony held on Friday 21st October at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, witnessed sixteen (16) graduates, trained over six (6) days for a total of forty-eight (48) hours, receiving their certificates of successful completion. Training sessions were held in Health and Safety, Report Writing, Customer Care, Radio Function, Conflict Management, Security officer code of ethics, Patrolling, Discipline, Team Work, Security Equipment, Effects of Fire, Fire Extinguisher, Emergency Response Procedures and Use of Force.
Captain Browne and Supreme Security have been training their employees for some time now as they recognize the importance of equipping their officers with the right tools to ensure that they are able to implement their jobs effectively, which helps in heightening their clients confidence and safety.
