International Police Commanders visit Isle of Man 28 March 2007

Isle of Man Constabulary has been selected to host a visit from senior Police Commanders from around the world this week.

The international Commanders will see the Island's neighbourhood policing as part of a prestigious training course organised by the National Police Improvement Agency in the United Kingdom. Part of the course's curriculum involves a visit to a police force to view at first hand policing styles and good practice.

Ten senior police officers will arrive at Ronaldsway this evening (28 March 2007) for a two day visit to the Isle of Man. The Commanders have asked to see neighbourhood policing in action, how a small police force deals with providing specialist capabilities such as firearms and roads policing, and the management of organised and financial crime. The Commanders have also asked to look at the Force’s approach to professional standards and the development of its people.

The Commanders are all at Superintendent, Major and Assistant Commissioner ranks and include representatives from the Royal Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, Botswana, Rumania, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the Philippines and Malaysia.

The Commanders will be working to a structured programme visiting Peel to see neighbourhood policing and the partnership approach with schools, youth workers, commissioners and politicians. They will also visit the Financial Crime Unit and have presentations on the Island’s approach to the areas that have been identified as being of interest.

Deputy Chief Constable Mike Langdon said:

'We are privileged to have been asked to host this event which will allow us to demonstrate the merits of neighbourhood policing and the way in which we manage the provision of specialist policing such as firearms, computer crime, accident investigation whilst at the same time catering for the demands of a 24 hour 7 day a week organisation.'
