Son follows father’s footsteps

The family tradition of excellent security officers seems set to continue in Barrouallie. Deputy Commissioner of Police Cyril Doyle appears to have set a good example and his son Corey Findlay is following his father’s lead. Evidence of this hereditary trait surfaced at last week Thursday’s 24th Passing out parade. {{more}}

Findlay, a former St. Vincent Community College and St. Martins Secondary School student received four awards at that ceremony. He copped the Dr. Cecil Cyrus Trophy, Baton of Honour and Commissioner’s Trophy. He was Best at military subjects and inevitably was adjudged Best Recruit.

Findlay admitted feeling “proud” of his accomplishment.

He said he particularly enjoyed weapons training. Findlay, a cool youngster, is looking forward to using the wealth of knowledge on the job and to progress.

His advice to other youngsters is to “set goals and strive to accomplish them.”

Findlay was the shining light at the passing out parade with 45 such officers making the transition from recruits to full-fledged officers.

Others excelling were PC 740 Biorn Duncan who was best at Drills and also at Evidence Procedure; PC Ishan Jordan, Best at Physical Training and Self-defence and PC 268 Godwin Charles, Best Turned Out Recruit and Best Rifle Shot.

Also on the awards list were PC 456 Nixon Lewis: Best at Sociology and PC 228 Tareke Cain, Best Pistol Shot,

PC 699 Damian Franklyn was adjudged Most Disciplined Recruit while Kayrol DeRoche was Best at Police Duty subjects.
