PRAISES FOR FORMER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF RSS
Former Executive Director of the Regional Security System (RSS), Grantley Watson, has been lauded by government and international officials for his “outstanding” work at the helm of that institution.
Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite commended him for his outstanding service, saying his contribution to the country and the region could not be measured.
He told Mr. Watson: “I am aware that our international partners have the highest regard for the RSS as an institution and that is in a significant way because of your leadership and because of the confidence that they have had in you.”
He thanked the international partners, saying that without them, Mr. Watson’s job would have been more difficult than it had been.
Executive Director of the RSS, Naval Captain Errington Shurland, said that Mr. Watson sought to analyse the criminogenic environments which affected the national security of Member States.
“This analysis led to new departments at the RSS Headquarters being established to carry out research on areas affecting national security, as well as analysing the crime patterns and trends, in order to establish evidence-based programmes to assist Member States in coping with the levels of criminality and ultimately the dynamics of national development,” Capt. Shurland explained.
Mr. Watson thanked the staff of the RSS, saying they worked hard during his tenure. He expressed appreciation for the international partners and urged them to continue making donations to the organisation.
