To mark the milestone, the officers attended worship at the Church of God of Prophecy in Peruvian Vale on Sunday, January 29 and will be participating in several social activities, including a picnic in celebration of the occasion.

One member of Course # 118 died in a vehicle accident in Anguilla some years ago and the remaining members who are all in SVG are: assistant superintendent of police, Thecla Andrews-Thomas; station sergeant, Ashlyn Bristol; corporals, Valdino Jack, Carolyn May, Devon Bute, and Nolan Barker; and constables Karla Burgin and Andy Trimmingham.

While reflecting on their achievements the officers extended appreciation to everyone who has impacted their journey thus far and requested God’s guidance and blessings as they continue to contribute effectively to the organization.

Sincere thanks were also expressed to pastor Conrad Williams and members of the Church of God of Prophecy for hosting the contingent and allowing them to worship with the congregation.

Commissioner of Police, Colin John, the gazetted officers, and other ranks of the RSVGPF have extended congratulations to the members of Course #118 on their achievement; their contribution to St Vincent and the Grenadines, and used the opportunity to extend to them best wishes in their future endeavours.
