On June 27 the Caribbean Institute for Security & Public Safety (CISPS) was publicly launched at a breakfast gala held at the Capital Plaza, Port of Spain.

Distinguished speakers and guests welcomed the Institute as a much-needed initiative for the industry. The Institute’s principal, Ian Ramdhanie, opened the registration for students at the launch.

Courses will be taught from the beginning of August.

Ramdhanie said: “The CISPS will provide top education and training that will contribute significantly to the security, safety and protection of both life and property through its diverse programmes, courses, research and publications.”

Speakers at the event pledged their full support and commitment to the institute and its programmes, a statemnet said. They also expressed their encouragement and enthusiasm for the dynamic institute that promises to deliver much needed courses for Security, Law Enforcement, Correctional Services and Public Safety personnel.

“The Caribbean Institute for Security and Public Safety will play a key role in shaping the future environment for security and public safety in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean,” acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams said.

“The Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service is pleased to partner and support the CISPS. Better trained security and safety personnel will provide for better practices which can prevent accidents and economic losses,” Chief Fire Officer Nayar Rampersad said.

Registration for the Institute’s Short Professional Development Courses have now begun and there are special introductory offers available for courses within this cycle August to October.

The Caribbean Institute for Security and Public Safety (CISPS) is the top institution in the Caribbean completely dedicated to offering access to first-class professional education and training in the areas of security and public safety at affordable rates, a statement from the Institute said.

The CISPS was established to fill a void in the professional training needs in both the private and public security and public safety sector. This includes security professionals, law enforcement officers, correctional officers, fire-fighting officers and interested members of the general public. Students benefit tremendously - personally and in their professional careers - from our top-grade professional education and training in these areas.

The institute currently offers a range of cutting-edge professional development courses that cater to the diverse needs of these sectors – as it truly understands their peculiarities. It is the institute’s intention to soon include advanced programmes such as certificate, diploma, associate degree, undergraduate degree and post graduate diploma.
