Human Resources & Professional Development

The RCIPS’ Human Resources and Professional Development Department (HR Department) is responsible for managing the administrative, contractual and labor needs of the largest agency in the Cayman Islands Government, with approximately 395 police officers and 63 civilians.  The Office is comprised of a Human Resource Manager and five staff, who process approximately 70 contract renewals and at least 50 vacancies each year, in addition to many other tasks.

Recruitment is a major and ongoing task for any police service, and forms one of the main duties of the HR Department.  In particular, the recruitment of police constables from the local community is a top priority for the organization, and the HR Department leads the RCIPS’ participation in job fairs and career days as one of its regular responsibilities, in addition to the organization of the annual local officer recruitment. One of the main messages that the HR Department regularly communicates to the young people of the Cayman Islands during these events is the range of roles and opportunities available in the RCIPS, with over thirty different kinds of positions within the organization filled by police officers and civilians.

In addition to exclusively local recruitments, the HR Department also carries out several general recruitments throughout the year for individuals with special skills and expertise. Such recruitments often require vetting and fitness exams, in addition to interviewing and testing, all of which the HR Department also must organize and oversee, often for applicants from other jurisdictions.

From time to time unpaid internships or training opportunities are also available in different departments within the RCIPS.  Those interested in such opportunities should contact Human Resources.

Aside from recruitment, the HR Department is also responsible for the maintenance of employee leave and employee contracts, both of which imply substantial work for such a large department.  Special circumstances that arise with employees requiring extra support, such as work-related injuries or extended illness and sick leave, also fall within the HR portfolio to address and manage.

The HR Department is a critical unit within management that helps meet the organization’s day-to-day needs and its obligations to its employees. 

Any questions regarding ongoing recruitments can be directed to RCIPSHR@rcips.ky.
