Interns with senior command and members of the HR department

(CNS): Nine young Caymanians who are home from university for the summer have joined the RCIPS Intern Programme, where they will be working and learning in several different departments. RCIPS Chief Human Resource Manager Marielle Hilaire said that the undergraduates are being placed in units relating to their interest and fields of study.

“The Internship Programme was established to generate fresh ideas and diverse perspectives to underwrite our success whilst providing practical work experiences,” said Hilaire. “It is our intention to continually accentuate our Corporate Social Responsibility plan by developing young Caymanians, stimulating our talent management and employer branding strategies, and improving our visibility and credibility in the community.”

Three students will be joining the community policing and HR units while others will be joining specialist departments:

Jonah Somers (Carleton University, Canada) will join the Finance Department; Kendra Rankin (University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Canada) will join the Criminal Investigations Department; Jessica Hurlston (University of West London, UK) will join the Crime Scene Unit; Marlique Muir (University College of the Cayman Islands) will join the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit; Morganne Forbes (currently enrolled in an online EMT Programme) will join the Criminal Records Office; Rhomar William (Teesside University, UK) will join the Training and Development Unit.

Hilaire welcomed the young Caymanian undergrads, who had “chosen the RCIPS as their learning hub for the summer”, and wished them a productive and enlightening internship. She said the HR department was looking forward to getting the feedback on their perspective and experience in the coming weeks.

    The CIG internship is simply world class. Over 120 Caymanians students are employed each summer and paid a salary. Yesterday the GAB was buzzing with young and excited faces of our dear children.

    Thank you CIG for again leading the way. A big shout out to our Commissioner of Police for providing this excellent opportunity for our young people.

      Terrific. Put our grads to work so they can gain local experience while they get professionally qualified. I hope they return each year and it is a natural progression into a job.

      This should be the practice all across govt.

      So sad so many grads rerun home and they are told they have no experience and cannot be employed.

      Way to go guys. You are on your way.

    Well done RCIPS An excellent programme for these young students. Let’s hope some, if not all, will pursue their careers within RCIPS after their graduation. No doubt, there will be some stupid and negative responses posted as per the norm but hopefully, the majority will back this as being a positive move by RCIPS.

    While this is great, interns need to get paid an allowance, even if it’s just lunch money.
