On Friday 20th October, 2017, police officers participated in the second session of the Women's Initiative for Non-Violence and Development (WIND) Seminar held at the Paul Farquharson Conference Center at Police Headquarters.

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), one in three women will experience domestic violence globally, and the caribbean islands has an even higher rate of sexual violence than the global average, but with support from the U.S. State Department Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), and the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), the officers were given information about gender base violence (GBV) and how to deal with it.

Lecturers for the seminar included Ms. Gaynell Curry; Director of the Department of Gender and Family Affairs, Dr. Barrington Brennen Physiologist, Magistrate Sandra Dee Gardiner and Ms. Ayla Roberts and Ms. Lelia Green from The Crisis Center.

Bringing remarks from the RBPF were Assistant Commissioner of Police Mrs. Ismela Davis-Delancy, Father Stephen Davies Force Chaplin and Detective Superintendent Shanta Knowles (CDU).

Project coordinator is Ms Latara Evans of the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) Country Coordinator.
