Following five weeks of morning sessions at Alele Museum in Majuro, five police officers from Majuro Atoll Local Government received certificates of achievement for completing the Basic Computer and Microsoft Application course.
The group is the second batch of local police officers to undergo the course.
Alele staffers Tarlos Larron and Angeline deBrum conducted the training.
The development is part of a bigger push to enable police to write incident reports.
“Sure there is a police blotter and ticket write-ups but those two don’t really describe what happened,” Police Sheriff Will Lathrop told the Journal.
Since assuming his new post as Sheriff, Lathrop has been enrolling his officers on multiple trainings such as the Basic Life Saving Course offered by Marshall Islands Red Cross.
Alele Director Melvin Majmeto congratulated the second batch of graduates and said Alele is happy and ready to take on more trainees.
