BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Mar 21 2017 – The Royal Barbados Police Force has embarked on sensitivity training regarding the LGBTI community.

Organisers say 16 police officers participated in the course on Saturday, March 18.

Representatives of organisations such as , Empowerment & Development; the and Caribbean Network of Transgender people; the , Lesbians and All-Sexuals Against Discrimination; Empowerment, Quality, Unity, Acceptance, Love, Strength; and the Movement Against Discrimination Action Committee were also in attendance.

said the training was necessary if Barbados was to keep its international commitments and she felt heartened by the response.

“It was great to get all these officers out to participate. Most of them were open to the training and I am confident awareness has been raised. The next step will be to hold a course for the top brass of the force and in three months, bring together focus groups to see how far we’ve come,” she said.
