Thanks to a recent grant from the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Miami Dade College’s acclaimed School of Justice at North Campus is developing and administering a job study for the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. The Behavioral Assessment Dimension Guided Exercises (BADGE), designed for the First Division ranks, includes written and oral assessments to aid in the Service’s Promotional Assessment Process. The College is also continuing its partnership with the Caribbean Institute for Security and Public Safety (CISPS). Over the summer, the School of Justice shared its expertise yet again by developing an international training program for managerial and security personnel in the hospitality industry in Trinidad and Tobago. Following the success of other programs developed by MDC for CISPS, including a tactical program for law enforcement officers, this new workshop focused on security in the hospitality industry and touched on various topics including terrorism awareness and prevention. Considered a national model of excellence, the School of Justice at MDC is routinely approached by local, state and federal agencies, as well as foreign governments for special training needs. – BC
