ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Superintendent of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF), Jacqueline E. Vanterpool, has returned to the Territory, following a six-week secondment to the United Kingdom (UK) where she was exposed to leading and managing operations which encounter issues such as public order, terrorism, sexual exploitation, and providing general public protection..

The Superintendent was attached mainly to Sussex Police Headquarters but carried out stints at the Central Hove as well as the Hastings, Brighton, Sussex and Gatwick-Sussex Police Stations.

RVIPF’s Communications Officer, Ms Diane L Drayton, made the announcement by way of a press statement on, Monday December 3, 2018, and noted that Superintendent Vanterpool, while on secondment in the UK, observed daily management briefings geared at planning strategically to garner results and engaged in the day-to-day activities within an active police station.

Operational Planning

In the area of operational planning, Ms Vanterpool was privy to the security preparations for the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations, observed the execution of an operational plan for crowd management at a football game in Brighton and participated in a tabletop emergency and major incident management exercises at Gatwick Airport and at Crawley.

Her stint in the active Control Room offered her insight into advance technology, resources and tools afforded to UK officers to enhance their day-to-day handling of crime and provide a higher standard of protection to the community.

New Recruits

According to Ms Drayton, Superintendent Vanterpool was also afforded the opportunity to address over 70 new recruits on her experiences as a police officer and her growth through the ranks to her present post.

In reflecting on her training, Superintendent Vanterpool observed that the secondment was timely, thorough and provided the kind of hands-on experience needed to propel her forward in her role as a commander.

“I have been privileged to see the UK Police Operations and Command from a strategic perspective and I now have a clearer view of what can (be) achieved as a senior officer and supervisor.”
