Po­si­tion for Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Re­opened

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The STAR has been re­li­ably in­formed that the ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceived thus far for the po­si­tion of Po­lice Com­mis­sioner have been deemed un­suit­able. As such the po­si­tion will be re-ad­ver­tised.

Sources have con­firmed that there were two front-run­ners: cur­rent Act­ing Po­lice Com­mis­sioner, Er­rol Alexan­der and Di­rec­tor of Corrections, Vern Guard. How­ever, a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer has since sought ju­di­cial re­view from the courts over the two ap­pli­ca­tions.

The po­si­tion of Po­lice Com­mis­sioner be­came va­cant when the last in­cum­bent, Ver­non Fran­cois, was sent on early re­tire­ment “in the pub­lic in­ter­est”; this, af­ter he was al­legedly im­pli­cated by the IMPACS re­port. Er­rol Alexan­der as­sumed the po­si­tion soon af­ter. He is up for re­tire­ment by the se­cond quar­ter of 2016.
