Report reveals plan for new Police Academy

POSTED: 06/13/11 12:59 PM

WILLEMSTAD – Construction on new buildings for the Public Safety, Security and Law Enforcement Training Institute (former Police Academy) have begun according to the body’s 2010 annual report. An architect has already plans, but construction is delayed because of challenges in acquiring funding.

The state of the current facilities in Rio Canario gained attention last week when a damning report by an inspection team was sent to the Members of Curacao’s Parliament. Some 40 trainees live at the facility which has leaky roofs and windows. There have been no major repairs at the facility for years beyond the renovation of Classroom 1 and Classroom 2 and improvements to classroom 4 that was financed by the Maduro and Curiel’s Bank. Beyond that the Government of the Netherlands Antilles only provided 60, 000 guilders for maintenance every year, with the rest of the budget being used for investments in training facilities and lodging.

The annual report does not state how much the new facility will cost.
