Defence Headquarters,  (RBDF): As the Royal Bahamas Defence Force continues to enforce the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Dr. Raymond King’s strategic intent to enhance responsiveness to the security environment nationally and regionally, members of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) completed a Defensive Driving Course on June 2, 2021.

During a brief awards ceremony held at the Police Training College School of Specialist Training, University Drive, seven Marines from the RBDF Commando Squadron Department were awarded certificates for their continued dedication in assisting with the Emergency Orders. Bringing remarks on behalf of Commander Defence Force was Senior Commander Chapell Whymms, RBDF Commander Operations.
