CARICOM border officials learn new detection and interviewing strategies

The training is designed specifically for member states participating in the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS), which includes countries from as far north as Jamaica down to Guyana in the south. This exercise is intended to enhance the elicitation techniques of CARICOM border officials operating at ports of entry. 

Participants in the course will be taught how to detect deception as well as elicit responses in others through the application of behavioral assessments and interviewing strategies. 

It is anticipated that at the end of the training frontline border security officials will be equipped with skills that allow them to distinguish genuine leisure and business travelers from persons seeking to engage in untoward activity in member states or who maybe traversing the Region to go elsewhere to participate in nefarious activities such as terrorism.

Significantly, on Friday, 21 border officials from St Kitts and Nevis will conclude a week long course in international passenger interdiction training (IPIT), which is but one of the several courses to be provided over the next six months. CARICOM IMPACS has been working along with its US counterparts since 2011 in providing both regional and national training to its border security officials all in an effort of making our borders that much safer.
