Ten police officers from the Coastal Executive Unit participated in a one-day Public Relations Training. The workshop was held on Wednesday, April 8th at El Pescador Resort and was aimed at improving customer service skills at the San Pedro Police Department and Caye Caulker Police Department. Dennis “Deni” Sunderman from Tropic Air and Steve Spiro from El Pescador led the training session, targeting key skills to promote a better relationship between police officers and community members.

According to Officer in Charge of the Coastal Executive Unit, Assistant Superintendent Henry Jemmott, the training was much-needed as many of the officer lack the proper skills to deal with the public. “We have always had complaints about our officers not knowing how to deal with people. We are trying to work on that because we want to have a good relationship between the police and the community. I have always encouraged my officers to treat citizens with the utmost respect and professionalism. We are here to serve the community,” said Jemmott.
