St. Lucia: Prison Officers Get Riot Training

Prison Officers Get Riot Training | St. Lucia Times

Six Correctional Officers from Saint Lucia  were among roughly 1,000 law enforcement officials from as far away as California, Florida, Germany and several Caribbean nations,  taking part in the 18th annual Mock Prison Riot at the former West Virginia Penitentiary.

The training included special operations teams practicing scenarios in which drones flew over the prison walls to drop off contraband.

There were also classroom sessions on topics such as mobile telephones in prison, how to manage hostage situations and how to manage stress on the job.

The six Saint Lucians who participated returned home  last week from the eight-day training course “fired up” according to one security official.
