Barbados Free Press received a copy of the following article and other information from a previously-unknown source in Hamilton, Canada. The source states that the Hamilton police are looking favourably upon applications for employment from serving Caribbean police officers. This apparently has to do with increasing the number of minority police personnel in the organisation.
The employment section of the Hamilton police have been holding a series of information meetings with various minority groups in the community, and the meeting with the local Barbados Association is scheduled for Thursday, May 10, 2007.
Here is the article as received, but so far we have been unable to find the source article online…
On Thursday May 10, 7 to 9 p.m, at Church of the Resurrection, 435 Mohawk Rd. W, The Barbados Canadian and Friends (Hamilton) Association will host a Career Information for The Hamilton Police Services, as part of the association’s community out reach program.
The Barbados Canadian and Friends (Hamilton) Association is a non-profit organization that operates under the umbrella of the National Council of Barbadian Associations in Canada.
The focus of the organization is to provide a forum for Barbadians living in Hamilton and its environs to communicate, in particular the youth.
The Career Information Event being hosted in an effort to bring the community in touch with the Hamilton Police Services, with a view to explore career opportunities available in law enforcement and other non uniform positions. We believe the partnership between the two organizations can prove valuable to the West Indian community specifically the youth.
