Written by Delroy Louison on November 19, 2017
The OECS Commission under Phase 2 of the OECS/USAID Juvenile Justice Reform Project (JJRP), is conducting a series of training workshops on Juvenile Justice for Police and Prison Officers throughout the OECS.
Grenada has recently enacted its legislation relating to Juvenile Justice and therefore it is critical that this training be conducted in order to ensure that implementers are knowledgeable while working with juveniles.
The training will take place at the Police Training School, Point Salines, St. George from November 20th to December 1, 2017; and will be facilitated by experts provided by the OECS Commission.
It is designed specifically for officers of the Royal Grenada Police Force and Her Majesty’s Prison on Juvenile Justice Reform measures and also relevant aspects of the Juvenile Justice Act.
Some of the topics for discussion for the training includes: Standards of Care in Custody, Aftercare and Social Reintegration of Child Offenders, Management of Juvenile Facilities, Conditions of Detention in Police Custody, Girls in Detention and Restorative Justice, among others.
